Any Suggestions Finding A Rheumatologist W/out Having Health Insurance?

Any Suggestions Finding A Rheumatologist W/out Having Health Insurance?

Moved cross country 2 years ago, and have been unable to work a full-time job due to RA. Therefore I do not have access to healthcare benefits through work. Have been off meds for over a year now, and have gotten worse. Any suggestions where to search or how to find help with and affording a doctor? Feel like I'm starting my progress all over and I need help in the right direction.

Lindee,
See if there is a teaching hospital near you, they may have a clinic or a research department that can help you. Also, check with the State of Florida, they may have insurance that will cover you.

....or a follow up question to my original- any suggestions specifically for pain/ inflammation relief in the meantime? Aleve, ibuprofen, salonpas patches, dragon cream, are some I try with minimal relief.

I haven't looked into that- I could try that... I'm just worried bc I live in an area where the system has a very high influx of people on state health aid and I can't go much longer without some sort of meds for relief. No telling how long the wait will be there, worth a shot tho.
