I just got kicked out of my rheumys practice because I’m still on 40 mg and didn’t reduce to 30 as he instructed several times. “Labs are perfect!” He says. Symptoms not that important. Told him why I didn’t want to reduce, tooth abcess, root canal, problems, also problems communicating with his assistant. He loudly told me he had talked to me 19 times, what??? Maybe called the office, not him, and certainly not 19 times in 3 months! So upset!
“I’ve talked to you at length!” He said.
He’s calling my GP and releasing me to her. Says he can’t be responsible for what happens to me from the prednisone since I won’t follow orders. But he will refill it until I’m under someone else’s care.
Told him I was having “niggles”, but his mind was made up and he didn’t want anything more to do with me. They didn’t even take my blood pressure or temp.
I feel awful and scared and like a “bad person”.
