What Would You Do??

What Would You Do??

What would you do? I can't get a call back from my rheumy. I've called twice since yesterday at 8:30am. My temp has gone as high as 100.3 since the weekend. My exhaustion is getting worse, even with me taking my Rheumate and my "flu like feeling" is getting worse. My back feels like I've been coughing and like I have bronchitis/pneumonia BUT I haven't been coughing.

Are you better? I had same symptoms once. Fever and extreme back pain. Turns out I had a lot of inflammation around and in my heart. Pain was worse when I was sitting or lying down.

I would go to the ER like Jenny10 said and definitely start looking for a replacement rheumatologist.

If your rheumatologist is not helping try your Primary Physician or go to the ER. This is a bad flu session and do not take a chance. When in doubt, Check it out. Let us know what happens.

Never had that before. Still haven't heard from my doc. I'm going to call them again in the morning.
