Back again to my awesome PCP. He looked at the model I took in and asked if I was bringing replacement parts. Apparently he’s never had a patient bring an anatomical model and request an illustrated explanation!
Another cortisone shot in both shoulders, plus a referral for physical therapy. It seemed I was having more trouble with bursitis and tendonitis than with my hands and feet.
My doctor again took time to listen to me and answer my questions, and explained that all the inflammation was from the RA. I left there feeling like he’s not paid nearly enough for all the help he’s given me.
