6 months ago the Doctor gave me a steroid injection and told me to see how it went. If it helped with the symptoms there is a medication that they can provide me with which mirrors the steroids. I was told i would have an appointment in 8 weeks time, which turned to 3 months. I then went back and saw a lovely rheumatology nurse who the appointment was with not the doctor. When I informed the nurse the steroid didn't work, they then said I had to wait to get another appointment with my doctor because they weren't expecting that! I then waited nearly a month for the next available appointment, go in today and my doctors not even in. I appreciate these things happen but to then be seen by another doctor who was very ignorant and decided that although I've told them steroids haven't worked that another steroid injection and steroid tablets will be best and for me to return in another 3 months. Definitely feel disappointed as they were so good to start with and now I'm questioning to even continue treatment.
