So today my rheumatologist informed me he's retiring in July....so... *sigh* here we go with new Dr search. It took awhile.to find someone who didn't brush me off, and now I have to find a new doc...In Michigan...in the thumb *groan
I live in Michigan and I'm on my 2nd Rheumatologist and the hospital here bought our all the other options, but theirs. Not to mention, once the docs do their residency they leave. The 1st doc and I had a SEVERE language barrier and he literally told me he didn't care about the pain I'm in everyday ( the past 4 days with an 8/9 level). The new doc told me to take Motrin. If that had worked I wouldn't be there. My insurance won't cover the only one meds he will try and I told him I had an very bad allergic reaction to the one the 1st doc gave me that's similar. Good luck to u DutchessBek, I can completely relate!
