Today I heard back from the lady at PALS she is going to try and get me an appointment with the rheumy clinic but not with the consultant as I don't want to see him, I told her the name of the doctor who I feel is good at her job. The rheumy nurse phoned me as well to say she'd been in touch with my GP so I'm going there tomorrow. I posted my letters today so now it's just wait and see. I feel a bit better now I've done something and other things are hopefully getting sorted. Shame the same thing can't be said about my husband, although he's now trying to be nice to me but it's too little too late.
