I just got an appointment for April 16. The receptionist who called me said they were still taking patients. I talked with them on Thursday.

Same answer I got….I don’t understand as they will accept me for speciality concerns including neurology, Pulmonology, endocrinology, fibromyalgia/fatigue center, endocrinologist, and now the spine center.

Wed, Mar 11 8:36pm · COVID-19 and MAC: What are you doing differently to protect yourself? in MAC & Bronchiectasis

I cancelled my trip too as I did not want to take any chances traveling through airports given my bronchiectasis disease. My “staycation”starts tomorrow and I’m now looking forward to it! No packing, waiting, etc…..even though I am missing out on all tha warmth and sunshine…..

I have tried on two occasions to get to see an internal medicine doctor for an overall exam for care regarding multiple medical issues to no avail. They say I don’t meet their criteria and I can be seen at my local clinic for overall care. I am presently diagnosed with chronic migraines, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, bronchiectasis, and osteoarthritis in multiple locations. I think I have them covered. This is at the Rochester, MN clinic. Good luck…perhaps it will be better in Florida😊

My rural area is similar to yours. We have some specialists at the clinic in our town but I have had less than desirable outcomes (wrong diagnoses) at times, so it’s hard for me to trust their system. I read often online and ask for referrals and at times, make pretty long drives to see specialists, which is okay with me to get answers I feel more faith in. I gain a wealth of information from this site and am so thankful for it. It helps guide many of my decisions.

Mon, Mar 9 8:30pm · Living with arthritis: How do you stay active? in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Hi! Migizii here…..the arthritis in my body is widespread but has only been really impacting me for about the past year, after breaking my foot (which set off the extreme arthritis I didn’t know about and had not been bothering me before the break). Eight months later it healed (osteoporosis delayed healing) and steroid injections to settle the pain later; walking a few blocks and going to a therapy pool have been what I’ve been able to accomplish, thus far. I also work full time which makes me pretty tired, so it’s hard to keep myself motivated.

Thank you for your insights. I have recently been diagnosed with OA and am trying to find my way through it all. I live in a rural area and do not feel the recommendations have been very specific to my needs, so this is very helpful in my journey.
