Hi Everyone, the last couple of weeks have been filled with infection after infection that I can't seem to control. So I've been a bit sad about things, just tired of being sick. But, I live for those few mornings now & then when I feel good for a few hours. Joyeous! But, the reason I'm posting is my Rheum keeps sending me off to see other specialists & truly only will deal with the "core" Lupus disease (if I can't sleep due to Prednisone she perscribed I have to see my internal medicine doctor for a perscription for sleep meds).
I have an Internal Medicine Dr., ENT Dr., Neurologist, Allergist Dr. + Rheum Dr. etc. It's exhausting to go through the same touch base with each during appointments - not to mention - exhausting to have to go to so many places to get "full" care. Combined with the frustration that some days I can't drive at all due to worsening symptoms.
My question is how many people only see a Rheum Dr. for everything? Or do most of us with Lupus see multiple doctors?
Thanks everyone for letting me know how things work for you.
