What should I expect at my first Rheumy Visit?

You can expect to have a physical examination, he/she will most likely order more bloodtests to be taken. You may also need to have xray's, scans etc; You may be started on medication depending on how active the disease is.

One thing most people find is that they do not get a definite diagnosis at their first visit so don't be dissappointed if this turns out happening to you, most Rheumatologists like to have definite evidence before making an exact diagnosis.

Hope this helps.
Take Care
xxxMaz I love you
