Had my appointment with my rheumatologist yesterday. I never know what to say when he asks "How are you? Do you feel better?"
I wanted to say " I'm doing fantastic and Yes I feel like the old me!" ...but that would be a lie. I told him my swelling has gone down since my last appointment, but my palms and fingers are still swollen. He looked and felt my swollen hands and asks me what I wanted to do with my meds.
This question confused me...I mean he is THE DOCTOR and I sell BEER for a living...lol...
I am on 400mg of hydroxychloroquine and 1000mg of sulfa a day. He told me I could increase my sulfa to 2000mg a day if I wanted to.
My question to you all is: " Is it normal for your doctor to ask you if you want to increase your meds?"
