.Well appointment was at 9am and just got home. had a very intense rheumy said probably RA had ultrasound of hands and wrists, xrays of hands,feet and chest, bloods taken for 9 tests and steroid injection. Also asked to take part in some research and I agreed. Not a bad word to say about the experience, was listened to and taken seriously, given the opportunity to discuss and ask questions asked how I felt about the diagnosis and everything explained to me. Told will be seen in 6 weeks but that realistically this is more likely to be 10 weeks as delays in appointment times. Just got to see what the tests show now and then probably start on DMARD'S . Also given information leaflets.
