  • Do you not think you should see your GP re pains in your chest Val

  • hi valm yes i probly should but iv fetched gp in for this a few times and they keep saying its from the pleuracy so theyv got me believing it myself now but thank you very much appreciated

  • Noah, how kind of you to be thinking of other's trials when you're feeling so down yourself. Is there any way you could make an appointment with another doctor at your surgery and make it clear that you want to discuss the way you are feeling at the moment and the fact that no progress is being made with the particular problem you're experiencing at the moment ?

    In the meantime, I wish you well and hope that you are feeling much better very soon :)

  • hi elian i always think of others because i know what you are going thro and when i see there are people struggling on here to get help and the replies they get i think its terrible as for my surgery none of the gps are any different they all say same thing i cant go to the surgery as i.m housebound so they have to come to me but because i suffer depression and am on tablets for it then you are automaticaly deamed to imagine a lot which is absolutely ridiculous my doctor i see for depression is quite happy its under control so these gps get on my nerves iv sufferd for long time with really bad coughing bouts and passing out but it took a real bad time my husband phoned for ambulance who took me instantly to hospital where i found i have copd emphasyma and i was ill with pneumonia and pleuracy and i imagined it all according to gp but the hospital had a go at them but pain in my chest is pleuracy they say lol so i just struggle on you take care now xxx thank you for answering me xxx

  • big ((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))) not sure there is anything else I can say apart from keep pestering the gp and hopefully something will get done in the end xxxxxx

  • I'm just debating putting a copy of noah's blog in with my DLA appeal: "...you persist to get whatever you need its your right..." - too true!

    Lets hope your pleurisy gets the proper treatment Jan, and that you get beyond rice pudding. Can't think of much worse stuff to be stuck with, but can appreciate the reasons why.

  • THANK YOU CALES AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH YOU TAKE CARE XXXXXXXXX

  • HI GORDON IF YOU THINK IT WILL HELP YOU TO USE MY BLOG THEN PLEASE FEEL FREE LOL AS FOR THE RICE PUDDING ECT WELL I PUT UP WITH IT BECAUSE IT KEEPS ME GOING I WAS ON YOGHURTS YESTERDAY SO THAT WAS A CHANGE EY LLOL YOU TAKE CARE NOW THANK YOU XXXXXX

  • perhaps an xray is in order to check all is as good as can be. Pleurisy shouldn't be left - it needs to be dealt with. x

  • HI JULIEKKAY THANK YOU FOR REPLING TO ME I SAW MY GP THIS AFTERNOON HE JUST SAID TAKE COEDINE IT WILL HELP PAIN WHEN IV BEEN TAKEN TO HOSPITAL THEY ALWAYS DO XRAY BUT DO YOU EVER GET THE FEELING THAT THEY JUST DONT CARE SO THEY JUST DONT WANT TO BE BOTHERD IT REALLY IS WRONG BUT THANK YOU AND TAKE CARE XX

  • Ahhh noah I agree the medical profession dont as a rule care about us. Specially us who suffer with depression as well as lung problems. I have found that out. Im also a middle aged woman so its its even worse - male doctors tend to think you make things up to get attention! I know what I want to put on my gravestone - I told you I was ill.

    Hope things get better for you xx
