Now down to 11mg pred and my mobility is not good i also have pain in my knee and I know I have osteoarthritis in my right knee , I was trying to remain positive but today I just broke down, I go to the doctor who does not want to give me any kind of scan, and says speak to the rheumatologist , so I go to the rheumatologist and he does not think I should have a scan and just to get down from steroids
So this is my predicament ... Do I change my doctor and hopefully get a more understanding one? ... Or do I insist that I need a scan to find out what is happening with my back and hips .
My rheumatologist does not seem to think I have pmr and says that I have a degenerative spine, he knows this by me bending forward and running his hand up my spine as I have NEVER had any scans so far and I have now had GCA for a year now.
I feel as if the only people who care are the people on this site, and I feel as if I am invisible everywhere else .
Please has anyone got any suggestions as to what I do next, do I go back up on the steroids or ride this out till I see the rhemy next month.
