Hi all, well I'm in week 20 of my 31 week waiting time to see a rheumatologist for the first time. Seen my referring GP last week and she was not impressed that she put in an urgent referral yet they put on the general waiting list. She did repeat blood tests cause of being on naproxen and even though the naproxen hasn't affected my kidney function my inflammatory markers were still raised. She has now put me on an extra 250mg of naproxen so a day I'm on 1250mgs of the stuff a day. She is also a member of a medical board and her exact words were "I love writing angry letters, I don't think it will get you seen any sooner but trust I am going to kick some arse on your behalf". Still in a lot of pain, it's now becoming a constant daily thing and I'm at that point where it's getting boring now. Like I said 11 weeks to go
