I am waiting on a rheumatology appointment (which has a 15 month waiting list) my bloods have shown signs of rh got results March 2016 since then I have been battling on and off pain. My doctor keeps giving me different advice - one is to pay private and speed the diagnosis up. That is a luxury I can't afford. I am currently taking robaxin and cocodomal which aren't taking the pain away. I try and mix them with ibuprofen but I have a stomach problem so have to be careful. On my last gp appointment he told me I needed to lose 3 stone which I agree with but it dosent take this pain away now. I work in a job helping the elderly which I am so worried about losing. I just want a diagnosis and effective treatment but I don't know what to do at this stage. Any advice ???
