My rhuematologist is very understanding of my pain. She has told me that if I have any pain, she will do try her hardest to get rid of it. She doesn't like her patients to be in pain. She listens to my complaints and lets me give input on my care and treatment.

I'm 1/4 way to my goal!

My first rheummy...she started me on meds after my very first visit -- no tests even done at that point. She did order tests, but she *talked* to me for over an hour and made a treatment plan based on the information I gave her. I did end up changing to another doc in that practice though, because the first one wouldn't let up about exercising. She was an exercise NUT and was pushing me to get into vigorous exercise....yeah, right.

My rheumatologist is GREAT - along with his nurse practitioner and the infusion nurse who gives me the Remicade. My doc - and his nurse practitioner - both palpate my joints on each visit and they seem to be able to know exactly which joints are the most inflamed. When I whine about being depressed and filled with anxiety, they are SO understanding. I'm very happy with my medical support team!! emoticon

My current rhuemy, my gp and the girl he sent me to for physical therapy. It took the whole team to get me going again, and adding Spark to keep me moving. Nobody really knows what you are going thru but you, but each can still help, if he/she is willing to listen and you are willing to divulge your real issues. That can be embarrassing, but it is how you get help.

Yes, definitely my Internal Medicine Specialist and when he retired, my Rheumatologist.

Did you ever have a doctor whom you felt had a good grasp on the level of suffering and disability you have with RAD? What was the doc's specialty?
