I had my first rheumatologist appointment yesterday via zoom. I don’t know about anyone else, but starting with new doctors is anxiety provoking for me. I have anxiety about being taken seriously and being believed. Will the doctor know anything about EDS? Then doing it over zoom on top of that made it only more anxiety provoking.
My husband came to the rescue and got everything set up so zoom worked without any hiccups. That made things so much better.
The doctor was wonderful. He was knowledgeable about EDS and took my concerns seriously. I have arthritis and I want to be sure what kind it is before I begin treatment. He has ordered labs and x-rays to be done in a few month. Hoping that this pandemic will have passed by then.
