The good news for this week is that the physiotherapist I started to see believes that the pain I have in many of my joints, including those where I have recently been told I have arthritis, is caused by a flare of my auto-immune system.
The bad news is that because it is a part of my flare, he is not sure that he can help me much with the pain.
I need someone else to start thinking about UC and me. I need someone who has lots of experience but keeps up with the research and knows what is new and what is coming next. I have the name of another specialist and I am prepared to use it.
