Another update

I emailed my GP today and gave her my history/symptoms related to possible RA. She responded in less than 2 hours and I have an appointment Monday. She mentioned referring me in the email so hopefully I’ll get labs and the rheum referral Monday.

I’m kicking myself for not pursuing this months ago. The flares had been relatively tolerable and the progression seemed fairly slow, but I’ve seen how it can take off. I just convinced myself I was over reacting and that it couldn’t possibly be anything serious. But this current flare is a stark reminder that this isn’t something to play with.

I think I’m would have gone over the proverbial edge if not for the threads, articles and support here. Thank you all so much!
