"Visit to Rheumatology for review of my Rheumatoid..."

About: Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital

I saw a Rheumatology nurse about my Rheumatoid Arthritis. I explained that I had not been feeling so well recently, and not able to do the things I used to be able to do. The nurse took this very seriously and after examining me she increased my medication, gave me a steroid injection and arranged to see me again in 3 months time. I felt that my symptoms were taken very seriously and that the team want to do all they can to enable me to live as normal a life as is possible with this condition. I felt very well cared for.
