I used to post here often, but haven't since we got here.
I am having a problem with the doctors here at Ramstein.
My primary sent me to a rheumatologist at Landstuhl
who was very rude,and didn't treat my RA. (Rheumatoid Arthritis)
I have since asked Tricare to send me to another rheumy,and they sent me to Homburg U.
Ok no problem, right? But there is, I couldn't understand him, and was
very uncomfortable with him. Now I am back at square one,and don't know what my options are. My primary won't even fill a prescription for the medication I was on when we got here. Heck he won't do anything as far as that is concerned.
My husband works really weird hours now, due to world events,and getting from the comiscary and back is hard. I don't drive, so getting to Homburg unless he takes he is all but impossible for me. Tricare tells me that this doc at Homburg is the only one I can see.
Is that even possible? I am at the point where I am ready to tell DH that me and the kids are going back stateside so that I can get some decent medical help.
I don't want to leave him now or ever, but something has got to give. I haven't been on the much needed meds because I can't get someone to write them out for me.
I do have RA,and have had it for 3 years. The morning stiffness lasts 3 hours in the morning, not to mention the pain,and swelling that goes with it.
If anyone has any ideas on how I can go about seeing a doctor here in Germany, I would appreicate it. I have thought about switching PCM's but wonder if it will do me any good.
Sorry for this really long post, I just don't know what else I can do.
Thanks for any advice, or ideas.
