Post question

Should i go threw and write down everything i can remeber from the past years medical wise before i see the Rhuematologist ?
Should i try to get copies of past test results ? We usually see Military doctors but the past 6 yrs i went to a outside doctor ,
The military base is where i had blood or protein in urine test cant rember but i had to go back several times . Where i was very bad Anemia to the point where they had my husband leave the room to ask me if he was hurting me .Then they did blood work
I dont know if i need to take these records with me or not . I will ask as soon as i get my referall from tricare ...

Re: question

Yes get a copy of everything you can and make a copy to give to the rheumatologist. There have been times when I have said one thing, my report says another. If we have it all in writing then it's more difficult to despite.

I wish you all the best, but don't mean to be synicial when I say, don't expect too much. It took me 3 rheumatologists before I found one who ordered the right tests to get me being treated. I've lost count of the number of times I was told it's just Fibromyalgia/in your head/making it up/depressed. If you know something's wrong, stand your ground but expect the worst and hope for the best.

Re: question

[QUOTE=paperbgprinces;4866894]


Thanks we are hoping it is nothing . It would explain alot that been going on but they are sending me based on blood work . They did the same blood work last year and it was fine .
I have started taking pictures of the rash that appears on my face and my hand . I do not usually go to my PCM unless it is for a yearly appointment . I just called the person my insurance said i would be referred to to they said give them 24-48 hrs more to receive it . It would take atleast 4 weeks maybe even 6 weeks depend on which doctor i need to see to get in .I think they are all just trying to drive me crazy..lol
