It turns out the nurse on the phone was at fault. I called again and spoke to my doctor on Friday and she had told the nurse to schedule me in, so I don't know why she was being awkward with me. I have an appointment on Thursday! Yay, I can't wait to bend my finger again. Isn't it sad what arthritic people get excited about? 2 years ago I was really scared at the prospect of a joint injection, now I'm looking forward to it. Hope it works!
P.S. Thought I'd update my blog 'look'. It was getting a bit old!
