Hello All

 

I've recently seen the rheumatologist and need advice. Please see the link to my post, in full on the U.K. sub forum.

 

Thanks.

Hi Amanda, sounds like you have been going through some hoops this month. My suggestion on the medicine is to take one pill on Monday mornings. The other pill either late in the afternoon on Thursdays or that evening before heading to bed. That way you will be taking it two different times of the day in case it might be significant. It will keep the pills spread more equally apart for you.

 

As for the Morphea I think I would go ahead and make your appointment for your dermatologist. Hopefully, you can find one that might specialize in Morphea. I tried to get into a Dermatologist last fall and the first appointment was for 4 months later. You can always call and cancel it if you don't think you would need that second opinion. I also would make sure you don't have to see the other rheumatologist again. Tell the office staff you have a preference for a certain one.

 

Hope things work out for you. Keep us informed.


Strength and Warmth,

Sheryl

Hello Sheryl

 

Good idea about the dermatologist's appointment, I'll have to get my general practitioner to make the referral after he gets the report from the rheumatologist.

 

Funny how it goes, one appointment and you've nothing better to do than a spot of navel gazing and the next everything that could happen happens! Well at least life with sclero isn't dull, that's for sure.

 

Take care.
