I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibro over a year ago and received no treatment or follow up= just told by the rhuematologist to take 8 paracetamol a day and then discharged. I know there is more treatment than this available so it confirmed to me that the doctors do not take me seriously!
Anyway, my symptoms are those of fatigue, pain, balance issues. More recently, about 6 months ago, I developed pins and needles in first my feet then my hands, and this lasted for about a month, then went away. I did not seek medical attention because I do wonder what the point is!
Ive been finding I need to go for a wee more often, and struggle to get home from visiting my parents 50 minutes away without nearly wetting myself before I get home, despite limiting my intake and going several times before I leave for home.
Ive had for the last month a horrible burning/ acid sensation in my scalp to one side, with a pins and needles sensation and crawling sensation, which has begun to wane but is replaced with a severe headache. This has led to a small area of numbness under my left eye. I am struggling to cope with xmas lights as they seem very trippy.
I have a GP appointment on Friday, am I wrong in worrying this may be something like MS instead of the diagnosis I was given after a 5 minute consult with a doctor who couldnt wait to get rid of me? Do I mention my concerns to them, or just hope they pick out from my symptoms what is the actual issue? Im concerned they may just fob me off, or that I will not believe them if they say its just a virus or anxiety or something.
I would welcome any advice on how to handle the GP appointment. Thanks in advance.
