I came back from er about six hours ago. Have not been to sleep yet. i feel like i have been dragged along by a car on the motor way this last six months! I feel like crying forever im so tired and look so wretched. but enough of feeling sorry for myself. im glad i had the guts to go to a and e .
Im pretty scared of taking the steriods even in case i react to them. But the docs at a and e said if it went wrong or i got worse to come back.
they have given me a letter to give to my Doctor saying that the appointment i already have with the endocrinologist specialist should be brought forward quickly. they told me however though that they think i need to see a rheumie for definate quickly too.
Im too tired to call the doctor today. but i may do anyhow. I am going to ask for an urgent rheumie appointment with graham hughes in london. im going to tell them i will make a formal complaint if they dont as i was given a drug that i had an allergic reaction too anyway. this is going to be hard as the doc i saw two day ago told me he was referring me to no more specialists or for anymore blood tests!! when i first got sick i was having wierd allergic reactions all the time and i think its cause i was having sulfamide drugs. I was always better when i had no drugs at all.
I cant even say if its lupus still i know it may be one of the little family it belongs too. but i counted at least two thirds of the criteria off on my check list. have excess protein in my urine high white blood cell count etc etc. why the first rheumatologist did not want to chase it up who knows. whatever this is i just cant be left.
Thanks for all your support and i will keep you updated.
