Well what a difference this time around. My appointment to see the rheumatologist was exactly as I hoped it would be. He was such a lovely man and really listened to me. He gave me a thorough MOT and actually left me feeling confident that he knew what he was doing. I'm pleased to say he hasn't said I definately have ra but he also hasn't ruled it out. He said I'll now be transferred to his Nhs list so he can do further tests. He wants to do further bloodwork as I've only had ra factor and esr up to now. Depending on that he may do xrays or a scan. He also gave me his secretary's number so I can get in touch if I have any problems before my appt is due. Even though I've had no treatment I feel more positive today. After 9 months of being messed around I finally have the chance to get some answers.
