Going private...anyone else feel they had to do it?
I have today booked an appointment at a private hospital to see a rheumatologist after becoming really annoyed at the fact that 5 weeks ago I was referred to see NHS rheumatologist and I am still on the triage list and they haven't even assessed my referral! Im sure this might not seem long to some but I am in do much pain at the moment with swelling in most of my joints and have extreme fatigue. I am becoming quite distressed at the chronic pain and really just need someone to assess me and tell me what is going on. I already k me I have OA in my knees thumbs and neck so sure something else is happening ad I just don't feel right. Had anyone felt they needed to go private?
