Still waiting for my first Rheumatology appointment. 4 weeks to go and I'm still signed off work (week 4). My doc did my ESR levels again last week as I'm testing negative for RF and Anti-CCP and my symptoms were quite bad. My ESR has been going up and down so much. It is now 39 which is the lowest it has been for a while and my swelling is slightly improved. Will the rheumatologist still be able to diagnose something if my ESR is lower and symptoms slightly improving. I'm really worried that I won't get a proper diagnosis. I have photos of my swelling and skin inflammation also a list of my symptoms. Has anyone else experienced this?
