Small Update

Been and seen the specialist at the hospital ref high ANA and leg & hand/finger pain.
They don’t know why I am in pain, but have ruled out a few things, so that’s something I guess.

pain is getting worse though 🙁 some days I just want to chop them off !

Now trying to get to see my GP, but now he is booked up until after xmas
so have to phone every morning to try and get an emergency appointment
trouble there is there are only 2 or 3 kept each day and they go very quickly

they just offer me a different GP, which I know will be no good as they will just say
I need to see my normal GP

oh well, looks like I wont be getting any further for a while yet

update when I can


Hi Age

How horribly frustrating for you! I think we all know what it is like to live with pain – exhausting! Just a thought, might a new GP bring a fresh pair of eyes and ears to the situation? It might be worth considering. When we got a new GP I was convinced he would blame everything that was wrong with me on my weight (even though there was no connection at all sometimes!) but I was flabbergasted when he suggested wls. My old GP didn’t even know what it was.

Anyway, just a thought. Take care of yourself and please keep in touch as much as you can.
