<remove long rant about referral problem which has now been sorted - bit of a mix-up at GP's and was nearly sent back to useless cons at Bart's. Worried I am now marked as nightmare pt with trail of consultants I won't see, but have appt with St Mary's on 1st Feb so at least something is moving.>
Anyway, am now really really nervous! The last two times have been not great with being told I am fine but hyperventilating and then being discharged after a few tests where I feel they haven't really considered things properly.
Any tips to try and prevent this happening again and getting bounced back to GP who is good but has admitted he now has no clue what to do with me? He is also relying on them to come up with some answers for my weird dizziness problem which is a tall order IMO! I have no idea who I'll be seeing and if they'll know about my weird sort of asthma.
I think I'm better off than the last couple of times as I now can say (if they listen) I have 2 meds that work and 2 that sort of work, plus a report from the local physio (don't know if they'll see that, do documents get transferred between trusts?) saying my breathing pattern is fine.
Last time I wrote everything down and gave it to the cons but she just looked at it and said 'well all this indicates asthma which you don't have'. Worth doing again though?
