Quick Question

Postby flowers in the air » Wed Jul 10, 2013 8:13 pm

I'm seeing the rheumatologist tomorrow, but have no idea what to expect. I've seen a lot mentioned about bloodwork to rule out various other things. Now I've had every blood test going since February (some more than once) and they've all been normal. Will these need to be redone, do you think? I only ask out of a huge fear of needles. And blood.

Thanks for humouring this terrified girl

I saw specialist on weds for first time I was scared,she was really nice,she gave me a full examination talked about illnesses and mainly history,I thought had every blood test going but some she needed to do,I went for X-ray and came home,so I presume he/she will ask questions do bloods if need be am sure you will not have same ones done again poss X-ray and they may want to do a MRI scan which you will get an appointment for that.

Good luck

Sounds similar, Tracie. He focused mainly on history, had me do some physical things and tested my pressure points (ow ow owwwww!!). Diagnosed me with FM there and then, but he has some concerns over how quickly it started so he also took some bloods and I had an x-ray. Not as scary as I thought it would be, but so painful
