Doctor Update

If you call it that ! I went to see my primary care doctor today and he was not much help about what is going on with me . He drew some blood and is probably going to end up sending me to a rhematolgist . He told me he does not think I have arthritis, however after a comment he made I have to say I think he does not know what the hell he's talking about. He told me something along the lines of " arthritis affects the toes and fingers,and other joints not the knees and feet " WHAT THE HELL ? Arthritis affects your JOINTS what the hell do you think a KNEE is ? Even I Know that.
He also threw around things like " Soft tissue diseases like Sclaroderma" which if you know what that is , lets put it this way i would rather have RA than that shit !
So anyway , my blood work should be back tomorrow and I am beyond frustrated at this point between 3 doctors no one know's what the hell is wrong w/ me !


  1. Hey Mindy,
    It sounds like a rheumatologist would be a good plan. It's definitely not fun not knowing what's going on. I think primary care doctors have a hard time sometimes because the symptoms can be so bizarre, but it does sound like yours isn't very up on RA, I'm afraid. Keep us posted about what's going on and hang in there! :) Laurie

  2. Thanks Laurie, No its not fun. I just want some one to tell me what is wrong w/ me . And i want something to help me not be in so much pain.
