Just wanted opinions really. I went to the GP yesterday, as I had to pick up a prescription for reflux tablets, as my gastro consultant wanted me to take them…while I was in there I asked if he had heard anything back from the hosp. regarding my recent MRI and nerve conduction tests…as I phoned my neuro sec. last week and was told my GP would hear this week. My GP told me that he would not hear…and that everyone ‘thinks’ that he will hear whats going on …but he won’t and that he’s just the middle man.
I also asked him while I was there if he could prescribe me something for my hand as I have awful pain sometimes in my left hand…as well as all the other symptoms that I still have. He just told me to take Ibruprofen. He told me that he doesn’t think I have MS and he thinks my tests will all be clear…I told him I don’t want MS…but the symptoms are still here and I need to know what is wrong with me. My neuro said maybe ME or Fibro…when I told the GP this he asked me if I thought I had Fibro…and tried to give me info…which I said I already had.
He then told me that I may just have to ‘live’ with the feelings…and he gets tons of patients in all the time with symtpoms like mine…and when I asked what can he do for me…he just said refer me for counselling…I wasn’t very happy…and I don’t think I’ll be going back to him again. I’ve already changed my GP once…because of this attitude …I can’t change again…they’ll all think It’s me
I will just have to wait and see what the results are and deal with my neuro.
