Re: question

Hi goldenwings,
Thankyou so much for the reply. It doesn't really affect my mouth, I never have I guess what you would call dry mouth, it's more of just a general feeling that if I don't get something to drink I'm going to faint. My eyes are never dry. I get overheated and dehydrated very easily but the winter doesn't make my thirst any different. It's odd, even if I take a hot shower I get flushed and faint and need water immediately. I agree with you, my rheumy is rather dismissive. His practice is very busy and it makes you feel more like a number than a human being. I wanted to switch rheumy's but the lupus foundation says he's the best in my area and many of the local chapter members see him and say he's great. Sadly, I haven't seen that side of him, if it wasn't for my persistence I probably would have died and he wouldn't have seen it coming. Sorry about the rant lol but thank you so much for replying, I really appreciate it. I hope you have a nice day
