Not really sure what to do!
I am a university student who has had to go home due to classes being cancelled ( with exam currently still on), have luckily managed to get a prescription for DMARD before leaving, however am due a blood test which I have had to cancel as a member of my household have a cough.
Now I am in a town where I don't have a registered doctor, and can't go in to register for another week and a bit, at which point I am relying on a smooth transition, which during these times will be anything but! Unsure if this will be prioritized and if it is not whether I can continue to take my meds, as normal.
Rheumy also wanted to up my dose last time as although my pain is alot better than previous, swelling has not gone down and she is worried about long term joint damage. (As am I after not being seen for over a year after symptoms began). Unsure whether to chase this up now or wait until the situation at hand calms down. especially as a change in dose would require more frequent monitoring!
Don't want to put pressure on the health service for something non-urgent, however these worries are playing on my mind a bit.
Wondering if anyone else is having similar problems just now?
Hope you are all staying safe during these crazy times. 😊
