Tentative diagnosis of RA, appointment with rheumatologist in three months, advice?

2021.12.03 06:41 invisibletigers Tentative diagnosis of RA, appointment with rheumatologist in three months, advice?

Hello! I went to see the doctor last Monday with my xrays and MRI's of both feet, one of which has structural damage and the other of which I twisted my ankle two years ago and the pain seemed to have spread into my big and second toe. For parts of last year I was in so much pain I couldn't walk, but chalked it up to these structural problems. When I saw my doctor I thought she would say ok we are going to schedule an appointment with a surgeon but instead she said there is a hell of a lot of inflammation there, and asked me if I had pain elsewhere. I told her the index finger of my left hand. She scheduled an appointment with a rheumatologist - I'm in France so it takes forever to see a specialist for anything. When I got home I sat down very quietly and realised I am full of constant dull pain, both hands especially my thumbs and index fingers, both wrists, both feet, both knees though to different extents, one elbow, and one hip are constantly aching but I just ignored it because I am all alone here with two kids and I have to work all the time and I just thought oh I am getting older (I am 47), but actually when I thought about it, these aches have been there for a long time.
I am sad that I didn't listen to myself, I am always tired and stiff and sore. I'm also exhausted every day by about 2 or 3pm and if I am not horizontal by 10pm its a problem. But my question is this - France is a really medicine-happy country, and my experience of doctors include prescriptions for steroids when you show up with a common cold etc, meanwhile I had covid-like symptoms for many months before covid became a thing and I was dismissed constantly because my lungs sounded clear. What I'm trying to say is I need to know what I need to know in order to be able to advocate for myself and not instantly be put on everything. I know medication helps this, I just want to know how you go about stepping into it when you are first diagnosed, and what makes a good rheumatologist? What do you wish you'd known at the beginning that you know now?
Thank you. This is a bit daunting. Maybe it is not RA (although then what is it?), I hope it's not, but I'd like to be prepared.

2021.12.03 06:41 jeckylln What are some good yes/no questions that really help you get to know someone?

I've got to run a game with work colleagues next week in which I'll ask yes/no questions and they'll hold up their answer on teams and then we'll ask people why. Its meant to be kinda fun and get to know each other better stuff. But I can't think of any decent questions. I want it to be a bit more fun and controversial than just "do you think being at the beach is better than being in the mountains?"
Any questions welcomed!

Do you model the entire signal and circuit digitally, e.g the resistors, capacitors, trannies?
Or is there some other magic at play here?

Fortnite 2042 I have always pre-ordered the most expensive version of Battlefield since battlefield 3 because I am a big fan of the series (Yes I know, I am also part of the problem with this). Even when Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 5 caused a lot of controversy at launch, I stuck with the series and enjoyed playing it. All the while, you still kind of knew you were playing Battlefield. This time around, it's kind of different. Why does the gameplay have to feel like this?

27x 5IV with 1x 6IV mixed in. All random natures. All in Fast Ball (Apriball, not a quick ball). 11 know Double Edge and Nature Power, whilst the other 17 know both of those and Extrasensory in terms of egg moves. First in best dressed really, will just pick a random Cyndaquil each trade.
LF Nothing in particular, other 4/5IV Breedjects would be appreciated but not necessary. Anything will do.
