Rheumatologist visit - None the wiser!

Recommended Posts

I have yet to meet a rheumatologist with an ounce of concern or compassion and not one has helped me. I'd advise you find a new one.


Meanwhile I also suggest you go to a cardiologist and get a full heart checkup complete with EKG, heart ultrasound and stress test. I had to take matters into my own hands because I had doctors telling me they heard a murmur yet would not check it out. So I finally found a cardiologist who would test me and yep he found a murmur and mild pulmonary hypertension. I'm now on a calcium channel blocker to help the palpitations and murmur and incidentally the same medication is used to treat Raynaud's so it makes me feel much better taking it.
