After my neuro appointment last week I went in to see my GP today to get a sick note and ask for results of some blood tests that the neuro had ordered - Vit D, clotting and myasthenia gravis.
The GP just glanced at my screen (after giving me a sick note) and said ‘all fine’. I happened to look at the screen and saw one was highlighted and one was blank so I asked him about them. He said “oh yes!” and then opened them up. As it happened my vit D levels are low - 15! Myasthenia one wasn’t back (although he’d said it was and it was fine!)
So my message is - question your doctors. I think he was in a rush to get me out of there, thinking I just wanted a sick note. I want answers - I’ve got one and I’m hoping that’s all there is wrong with me.
Today I got my appointment through for a full spinal MRI which I will go for - just to be sure.
Everybody - it’s your body, I know for sure I’m not ‘right’ and I will keep pushing to make sure they’ve exhausted all avenues. I will take my tablets but I will also make doubly sure it’s not something more serious.
Good luck everybody.
