After over a year of trying to get through to my doc, after two Rheumies blew me off, after a pain clinic that was mostly crappy, my GP now believes what I've been trying tell him. That something's very wrong. He believes me now because my fingers turned blue in front of him. Almost a year ago I asked to see an internist, doc said the internist wouldn't be interested in seeing me. Now he's asked me to see one. I've also requested to see an opthalmologist and he's sending me. He's diagnosed me with Raynaud's. I also suspect I gave lupus and sjogrens. It's just so nice to be believed and have my GPs backing. Not only that my GP said and I quote, "We just don't know everything about this kind of thing." He couldn't have said anything better to me. I thanked him for that more than once.
I'm scared about what diagnosis I'll get but at least I have my docs backing. Such relief!
