Hello everyone, I posted my first post a couple of months ago about being referred to rheumatology as I had 2 positive tests. Thank you for welcoming me to the forum.
I was supposed to have my appointment a couple of weeks ago and the hospital cancelled it I’ve now got a new appointment for next Thursday at a different hospital, I’m getting a little bit anxious over it as I don’t know what to expect, can you tell me what is likely to happen at this appointment please? My daughter is coming with me for support and to hopefully remember things that I forget.
I’ve started to write down the joints etc that hurt and any swellings etc , is that a good idea?
Should I write some questions out if so what should I ask ?
My hair has started to fall out over the last 2 months, my hairdresser noticed a small bald patch on the back of my head which wasn’t there on my last appointment with her so it’s appeared since December, Now my hair is falling out, I had my hair done last week and she remarked how thin it had become. Could this be connected to my possible diagnosis of RA, I spoke to my doctor about it and he wasn’t interested and just dismissed it.
