I wasn't supposed to see the new Rheumy until September, but I ask to be put on the cancellation list and they called me yesterday with an opening on Monday! I am so nervous!!! I babble a lot because I have so much to say! I want to be treated or helped when I am in excruciating pain. I am also scared that this new doctor does not want me to be on the pain meds I am on. I have had a bad experience already and even though the pain meds do not take all of the pain away, they do help. Im on oxycontin, a low dose, only 10mg but you all know how these doctors feel about this drug. The sad part is that I've never been on pain meds...ever, until I got this darn disease! I have a million things I want to say and things I am worried about like, what happens with my infusions? Does everything just transfer? And what about all of the money I have already paid my doctor...do I have to start over with this new doctor??? Ugh!! I'm so anxious! Can anyone give me advice?
