Has anybody in Dallas found great or even good doctors? My primary care sent me to a rheumatologist who says she doesn't treat fibro patients... And sent me back to my primary care doctor. My primary care doctor then started me on meds and told me to check back in with rheumatologist to let her know how I was doing on the meds... But rheumatologist says she doesn't need to see me anymore... Ugh!!! Suggestions please... Getting a little tired of the run around!
I know exactly how you feel, I broke down crying with frustration to a doctor once and she recommended the same thing. That I need therapy. I think what it is, is a lot of people can't understand or even comprehend the kind of pain we endure on a regular. They look at us if like were crazy or a different species, when all we want is for someone to listen, understand, and help us find anyway of relief.
I feel ya. I went to a rhuematologist and she said "you need to go see neurology" and they said "you need to see an RA" ....it's very frustrating. I live in Austin and the doctors are horrible
The Rheumatologist did nothing for me really,he didn't believe in it either .I know how you feel
I don't use a RA specialist...I actually use a neurologist. I have an appointment in June at Parkland in the neurological department. The department breakdowns your needs and finds which doctor will best serve you...the doctors I need see didn't have an opening until the first week of June and my referral was approved the last week of February. It's about actually breaking down your symptoms and getting those treated.
Unfortunately, I didn't discover how my Rheumatologist felt about fibro until my 3rd visit and 4 months after referral when she told me she doesn't know why I'm not better yet. She then proceeded to tell me that I needed to see a Psychiatrist when I broke down into tears from the sheer frustration of it all. I am trying to get in with a new Rheumy since I have also had to get a new Primary who said that maybe the rheumatologist is right since it is her specialty. 😡😯😦
