i am currently waiting for my first appointment to see someone about the Osteo side of arthritis. I can't remember the name of them lol.
I've seen a rheumatologist a few times over the years and know what they do at the appointments. What should I expect to happen here? I'm hoping there is going to be some scans or something besides blood tests as I'm sick to death of the constant pain, thankfully I've had a week where I could walk unaided and now the pain and numbness has came back with a vengeance.
I'm hoping that they will actually do something but I can't help but worry that they will say that nothing is wrong but maybe that's the paranoia lol. Also, is memory issues something to do with things like this? Sometimes I can't think of the right words which are a daily thing, like telling my son to get his shoes, I forget the word shoes and end up having to tell him to get his feet things (which isn't going to help him as he is 4 and learning still)
