Having been reading posts on this site avidly for past few months and it is amazing what I have learnt. I have stopped taking my Alendronic Acid and Omezaprole and let my GP know. He sent me for DEXA scan which has a 46 week waiting list in Edinburgh! I got mine within three weeks as I think they were concerned I was not taking a biophosphate. Fortunately all very good with bones. Now got first rheumy appointment in two weeks and I want to go prepared. Should I have current bloods done? Last done end of September when markers were raised. My highest ESR was 94 in March but now back in single figures. I've adopted the slow reduction method since reading about it here as I struggled with a flare in September. Between 17 and 16mg at moment. Had a busy weekend walking and feeling bit tender round shoulders so hoping its exercise as opposed to any flaring!
Is there anything I should be asking my rheumy about or that I should watch out for?
I realise its a bit of a vague question but want to feel confident and be happy to stand my ground!
