Rheumatologist

I'm finally going to the Rheumatologist next month! I don't quite know what to expect. Anyone got any advice on how to prepare for a first visit? 😊

Do they have a copy of xrays or MRIs? All tests. So no repeat. They'll probably run blood tests.

Write down your symptoms and how long you’ve experinced them. Type: sharp radiating gnawing etc and locations. Doctors that have treated you. What meds your on tests etc. It’s very easy to forget some of these things once your there. Also what AnimalLover 2 suggested. A family history of disorders/disease. This is important as it can be a factor in your genetic tendencies in the family. I hope you have a productive visit with your rheumatologist. 🌸
