So discouraged!

Jun 27, 2017 10:05 AM

I'm getting so discouraged. I have had pain and burning in my arm and elbow for months. Had a cortisone shot that lasted 3 weeks and the pain is back with a vengeance. Doc said I should see a rheumatologist but since there are so few here it takes forever to get in. He said they would call me because I need a referral. They put the referral in 2 weeks ago and I have heard nothing. Called again and doc said to be patient because they are overloaded. Between this and the fibro and the neck trouble I have it just gets to be too much.

I'm sorry you're in so much pain. We're here if you need to talk. You'll be in my prayers.

What about a prednisone pack to just ease the inflammation for a week or two?

We tried that and it didn't work.
