Do I need both a rheumatologist and a pain clinic?
My ex-rheumatologist sent me to a pain clinic for RA after my last appointment. He did this because, in his words, he had “failed me.” None of the treatments we tried had made a real difference in my pain and fatigue, and he had given up. I now have a new rheumatologist (needless to say!), who says he won’t give up on me. Do I still need the pain clinic?
