Hi thank you for this information. I must have missed it before. My referral to a rheumy after 3-4 years of multisymptoms was prompted by very extreme uveitis with my iris attached to the pupil in my eye. I left it to get so bad (it was my 3rd episode) because the Gabapentin I take masks my pain. So beware if you are on pain killers because I really wasn't aware of how serious it was. My experience was very scary when they told me it was severe I suppose I was put off by the attitudes I have encountered when various health professionals made me feel it was all in my mind. Anyway I now have only 2 weeks to go for my appointment with a rheumy so please everyone keep your fingers crossed that they will help me as my pain has been excruciating whilst on holiday last week. This info is so reassuring to me as I always need to be convinced that I am not imagining my symptoms. I really need to be assertive but its so hard wen I get into the consulting room.
