Nikki you are not **** anyone off.
This is a support forum and you are at the end of your tether so it is an ideal place to rant.
I am sooooooo relieved you are taking the epilepsy meds.
I can tell how distraught you are,but you know the advise thats given on here regarding neuro visits and having your checklist ready.
I think you need to approach the gp in the same manner so he doesnt see you as an anxious patient and fob you off with anti depressants with no thought/help given in terms of addressing your pain or symptoms.
It many be because of your treatment that ad's may help you cope, but aswell as looking into everything else,not instead of.
Kizzy has posted one of Rizzos ways to approach neuros on here to answer someone elses thread it may be worth having a read so you can get the most out of your dealings with the medics.
It really does sound like you need a new gp though.
All the best...and keep ranting on here.
