Last week I had my first visit with the new Rheumatologist Mariko Ishimori at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. We discussed my medical history, current medications, she checked my joints and believes the Cimzia is working, it did not feel like it was working fully yet. We also discussed the muscle relaxers and I changed to doing two at night and one in the morning. This has helped improve sleeping through the night. We discussed my thyroid issues and she checked out my swollen lymph nodes and she has referred me to an Endocrinology doctor. After the visit we went across the hall for blood tests checking thyroid and Vitamin D again to see if the 2000 IU is working to bring my Vitamin D levels back up. Lloyd was able to take some photos during the visit at the doctors office and while I was having blood tests done. I will be going back for the results and see the Endocrinology doctor in about 2 weeks. I am not really looking forward to seeing another doctor.
