rheumatologist stopped mtx 4 wks ago as chest clinic dr. wanted lung ct scan 'just to be sure' .altho gp's steroid nosedrops had clearedup cough .am told by clinic dr's secretary that scan request marked as 'routine' so may be waiting months. tried explaining my diffs; said she'd ring back but nowt. gave and took ibuprofen again last night. What else to do? wd going private speed it all up and at what cost. ideas, folks pse. GPs have no sway with consultants here in N Ireland I'm told.
