I have been previously diagnosed with an auto immune disease by a different specialist. I had been cared for by this specialist for over 5 years and my pain level was was manageable with the medications they had me take (infusions as well) and exercise prescribed. I came to this rheumatologist at Victoria and the diagnosis was completely different. My medications are different now too. My illness and pain is off the charts. I hurt so much everyday and it's hard to do anything. My previous rheumatologist had run extensive testing to get to the diagnosis and the new one didn't. I feel like I was rushed by the new one and feel like a number in the system.
