This week, my original rheumy having retired, I met her successor - young and keen. She gave me a good going over and couldn't understand why I was still on steroids after five and a half years. Her predecessor had no problem with that. Anyway, she (the new one) was concerned about my markers still being raised and wondered if there was another inflammatory condition contributing to this problem - as well as Sjogren's Syndrome. I also got her to look at the lump on my foot that prevents me from walking as far as I'd like and, today, two days later, I have received an appointment for an X-ray next week; and, in the same post, an appointment with the rheumy nurse in July. This new young lady doesn't hang about!
