Okay, so my rheumy’s office apparently doesn’t handle pain meds. Not quite sure what to think about that. They ‘treat’ the disease, but not the symptoms? Except if I’m flaring, I might be able to get more steroids…? Something here doesn’t make sense. They weren’t even willing to discuss any of that with me. Whatever.
So in the meantime, life sucks. I have an appt with my ‘primary care’ doc tomorrow. Hopefully she can give me something for pain. Otherwise, it’s a referral to the pain management clinic… which I’m sure would be helpful, but I just can’t afford it – the cost or the damn wait.
