Well... I did it! i'm very pleased with myself, though I did make a mess up of the booking system but not saying straight away the recommended doc i wanted, then accidentally implied the others were rubbish...but hopefully that won't count against me, i was terrified! i have also booked it under the guise of a white lie to my mum, saying i would be going to ask about something else cos that was the only way i could get her "permission" to make the app. I know I only have 10 minutes, so here is what I hope I will get out, and i welcome opinions/suggestions for better phrasing!
I have been experiencing random and worrying symptoms since October 2010, I have had one blood test done for I believe anaemia and glucose, tho am not sure, this came back fine.Since March/April this year,things have started to get quite bad again,there is a long list of symptoms but these are the main ones causing me trouble right now: (hand over list)
1-Pain - crushing in feet,general ache and stiffness in legs and wrists
2- Numbness in feet and legs
3- Sensory - burning,itchy,prickling,buzzing sensations all over
4- Tremor/twitches - Legs/hands
5- Cognitive - trouble focusing on reading,seeing words the wrong way round,saying words wrong way round,word finding and articulating words.
somewhere in with pain and tremor i was going to mention that this occurs more at the time of the month (what im allegedly seeing her about), as its true, it does, and ask if she can't help on the overall front, can she help with that? That way, im not confusing the issue even more and its not a total lie on my part.
I've also booked it during work time but just had to get it out of the way before i had the chance to chicken out, so cross your fingers i wont get in trouble! i do have an understanding boss, but you never know....
I'm not sure if I have catagorised stuff right, could anyone clarify? If you were doctors, would you be bored with me,maybe its long winded?
