You have already been given excellent suggestions. I also think it is not acceptable that you have to wait 3 months before being prescribed something different. Sometimes our doctors in the USA will prescribe a short course of Prednisone to stamp down the worst symptoms. Either a medrol dose pack or a specific dose for a specific period of time. My rheumy has me take 40mg for 2 days and then 20mg for 10 days and then off. Perhaps she will even prescribe low dose prednisone till your next appointment.

Take care,
