I've been feeling bad more or less for the last three months (with three weeks off in the middle) and last week I'd really had enough. After several mix up's with the GP and neuro office I got sent to a new GP who decided that my symptoms were not an outright emergency but did need to be seen by the neuro sooner rather than later.
On leaving her I really felt like I'd had to push and push to get anywhere with her. I had to asked three times if I could have some routine blood tests etc done! What really convinced me that she didn't really take me seriously was when she told me that she wouldn't send me to see an MS specilist and wanted me to see a general neuro (who I am already under) because she felt certain that I didn't have MS as my MRI (for aneurysms) didn't show any signs. As soon as I started to explain that this doesn't automatically rule MS out she closed me down straight away.
The GP's that I have seen have not been willing to treat or help in anyway with my symptoms and to be quite honest I don't want to keep going in and being made to feel that its all in my head!
Today I have been so off balance (on and off) that I almost fell in the car park, the doctor told me that it was probably vertigo but its happening almost every day now. I DO feel like I am improving - I ventured out. I've also got a blur in my right eye which at first I thought was from face cream that I had put on but it's not going and I noticed that this morning, but this evening it hadn't got worse but there is a definate ache there now but not really what I would call painful.
My first reaction is to panic and call the doctor but what will they do and I really don't want to start sounding totally neurotic and calling them about everything that happens lol.
Would you be going to the doctors or just waiting to see what happens? Just want to pull on your experience please
