I finally saw my GP again yesterday after a 5 month period. He gave me a referral to a neuro, but only because I demanded it, and I’d taken my husband along for back-up. Even though he knows I’ve been getting paraesthesia and numbness for almost three years now, he seemed very keen to put my problems with my arm down to a trapped nerve. I felt that he wanted to discount everything that went before, or didn’t relate to my arm, and was quite happy to treat me with ibuprofen. One thing that I wanted to ask others on the forum concerns reflexes. My reflexes seem to be highly reactive (ie: not lessened in the arm I have problems with), and I get the feeling that the GP thought that this was a good thing. Can anyone help me to understand this?
