I have been in pain tired depressed and recently went to my doc had labwork and was told I am positvie for RA factor. Now I am waiting for a referral to see a specialist. I have spoken to a nurse in my docs office and she was not helpful told me my labs were sent to a rheumatologist and if they accepted me as a patient they would contact me. That was a week ago and I still have not heard anything. How long will it take to make the appt. And what happens if rheumy will not see me?
