I saw my rheumy yesterday. He is wonderful!
I last saw him in February and since April I've followed a restrictive diet and lifestyle regime (AIP) which he didn't know I was doing till now.
He said he was 'delighted' with my progress, that my CRP and test results are 'lovely' and I'm the only patient he's ever seen following 'such an excellent programme' for PMR, controlling inflammation and improving the microbiome.
He was SO encouraging and affirming I came out of there floating on cloud 9!
I hear such a different story from others here which saddens and infuriates me. I know I'm extremely fortunate to have such a caring, supportive and knowledgeable medical team.
If only this were the case for all of us!
