    Re: Covid vaccins and WG

    I agree. My Chart (and other variations) is a wonderful tool. As I understand, there is a software basis to it that allows other medical services to get access through their own version - possibly...

    Re: Coronavirus and GPA

    Hoping you are recovering nicely from this bump in the road drz. I had a reaction to a Hep A shot years ago and it was pretty scary - but got better quickly. I'm hoping the same speedy recovery for...

    Re: Rhinoplasty and Insurance

    I had one more idea for you . It may or may not help with this issue but certainly could help for insurance issues in the future.
    Many years ago I was extremely ill and my insurance was refusing to...

    Re: Rhinoplasty and Insurance

    I wonder if the Vasculitis Foundation would have some ideas about how people have been successful getting this paid for in the past? It's a fairly common surgery in our group. I'll bet they have some...

    Re: My cough, its so bad!

    I was initially diagnosed with GERD too and took buckets of protonix and every other GERD potion known to man. In the beggining it helped but over time became less effective and my symptoms moved...

    Re: My cough, its so bad!

    I found that many doctors are not very well educated about LPR. I had to learn about it on my own- I was not taught anything by my doctor. My gastroenterologist never mentioned that diet might help...

    Re: My cough, its so bad!

    I might know. This may not be what I had but it sure sounds like it. Horrible cough and sometimes hoarseness in my voice. For weeks. So bad I injured myself coughing. In my case I know for sure what...

    Re: New User with no diagnosis. Looking for advice.

    That's great news. I wonder if you could speed things up by asking for that referral NOW from your old doc and the new doc if the old doc says no? Can't hurt to ask. I've had good luck working with...

    Re: Coronavirus and GPA

    Very interesting. A few months ago my insurance would not approve 1000mg but said they would approve 500mg which is what I ended up getting.

    Re: Covid vaccins and WG

    Thanks Mish. The last twenty years it has been very rare for me to get a flu or cold- probably due to my personal circumstance of isolation and the great care I take with sanitation.

    Re: Covid vaccins and WG

    Earlier in this thread I asked the question as to if immune suppressed patients would have accurate tests for COVID. I had two episodes of a serious flu-like illness in the past 4 months.

    Re: New User with no diagnosis. Looking for advice.

    So sorry you are having so much trouble. Not having a diagnosis magnifies it by 10X. Since your Rheumatologist suspected GPA was a nasal biopsy done? This is one of the gold standards for GPA...

    Re: Covid vaccins and WG

    Thanks Alysia.
    In my case the symptoms were very different from WG. Sweats, fever, vomiting, diahreaa, and just extremely sick - very fast. So weak I literally grew worried that I was not strong...

    There is a good chance they will have an access program for patients. Maybe not everyone would qualify but some would. I was prescribed Rituxan before it was FDA approved and my insurance company...

    That information does help. Three months ago my insurance company refused to pay for 1000 mg and said they would only pay for 500 mg which is what I ended up getting. It was intended to...

    I've read of 200 mg being used for people with RA. I'm curious of anyone with GPA is on such a low dose. New medications are always done at a higher dose than might be necessary. Lowering the dosage...

    As the use of Rituxan is going on for several years now has anyone here used a low dose of Rituxan? I see 200mg as a possible dose in RA studies. Anyone here had a dose that low and at what...
