I loved my rheumy that diagnosed me. He was oldschool and cautious. He believed in starting with the milder drugs and I liked him for that. I placed my health in his hands and did what he asked of me. Why would I question him? He was the doctor and I sold beer for a living. Who would you listen too? lol
Well that was almost 2 years ago, and I am worse off now. My RA has progressed. I got a referral to a new rheumy 3 weeks ago and I was put on 10mg MTX, my sulfa was cut down to 3000mg and my hydroxy is 300 mg a day. Finally I had a rheumy that examined me and asked me how I was feeling.
Anyways, last friday, I took my 2nd dose of mtx and spent the next 2 days in my backyard feeling groggy and tired. Needless to say I didn't hear the message on my landline about my new rheumy retiring and my file was going to another rheumy.
I just find this so fusterating. Why me?....ok I'll stop whining now.
