Ok. So I *still* don't have an appointment with a neurologist or a rheumatologist. I took my daughter in yesterday for an ear infection and asked the receptionist how that process was going. She dug through a pile of papers and found mine near the bottom. She said she has a call into a neurologist, but hasn't heard back yet and that she hasn't called the Arthritis Center (I guess where they're going to be sending me?), but she could do that. And she said that in a way like she was doing me a big favor. I really, really like this new doctor. She is the first one that is looking this as a whole body thing, rather than just looking at each symptom individually. However, I really need to get something going. My life is basically on hold until I can get into the right specialists. I'm afraid if I make a stink that my doctor won't want to see me anymore and I don't want to start all over. But, at the same time we need to get something going. It will take a couple of months to get into these people AFTER they call to schedule. How do I address this without offending anyone or putting anyone on the defensive? It doesn't help that I'm having just a completely overwhelming day with pain. I've been on the verge of tears all damn day.
