Just diagnosed and under 35
Hey I'm Em.. My gp has referred me to rheumatology and has started me on prednisolone. We are having to wait to see rheumatology as the earliest appointment is Feb. My GP has confirmed more than 10 joints are affected and that my CRP and ESR have never been below 15 and flares start in September..
I'm feeling shocked and scared but in another way it makes sense.. But this is a strange time emotion wise and I think I won't truly believe it till I've been seen by rheumatology as its been a long road to get here and get believed because of my age.
