@frawlsco You sure sound like you’re having a difficult time getting help. I understand that Mayo Clinic wants you to see someone in internal medicine first. That is because that is how insurance works. Everyone starts with their PCP or internal medicine for a basic workup. They can then be referred to a specialist (rheumatologist). I entered a link that you may find helpful. It’s from the National Institutes of Health.

They may even have a phone number you could try. I have another resource, that i will find, that may also be of help.
Will you try this and let me know what you’ve learned?

The Autoimmune Association just held their 1st summit to discuss all the issues surrounding autoimmune diseases.
You can look up Autoimmune Association on YouTube and a flyer for the summit should come up. Just to the right of the flyer is a list of topics you can listen to. One which might interest you is “Path to a Rare Disease Diagnosis.”
Let me know what you think!

thank you for responding. I will let you know what happens . I plan on setting up the appointment after the new year. I guess I see them first and then they request all the doctors files? I just hope it may be one problem which just hasn't been treated correctly. I don't know.
