I have a rheumatologist appointment soon and I don’t know what to say. I’m worried I’m gonna say the wrong thing and drag out getting a diagnosis/help. Is there stuff I should bring up vs stuff I shouldn’t?

"Before your appointment, write down all the symptoms you have to make sure you remember them all when you meet with the rheumatologist. Don't take pain meds before your appointment as it's going to give the rheumatologist a better idea of your pain. Make sure you are telling the rheumatologist everything you can about what you're experiencing. Additionally, if there is anything about your condition that can be told through blood work but if it doesn't show anything, be a little persistent so you can get the help you need."
