Hi there I am two and a half weeks into treatment with prednisolone and all seems ok. Still have painful shoulders and few aches and pains but vast improvement. My GP has referred me to a rheumatologist as I am 51 and just wanted a check. I am thinking of paying privately to speed up the process but there seems to be a mixed view on rheumatologists generally. Would welcome any advice on what they will add. Also if you as aware of any experts in the Cardiff/Newport area of South Wales area???
Any advice gratefully received
