Don't know if anyone else has had this problem. After visiting my physiotherapist trying to get me fit before my knee replacement I was suffering worse back pain than usual. She told me to go to my doctor and ask to be sent to pain clinic and didn't treat me that day as it was so bad. Have a big problem with my back. Can't walk properly after broken hip. Making it worse. Doctors visit was very uncomfortable. He said what does SHE know. Trying to bundle problems onto me. Then he said you,'ve got Osteophites, Arthritis and Osteoporosis, as if to say what do you expect. He would not send me to the pain clinic as she suggested. I was sent to my physiotherapist by my consultant. Doctor reluctantly sent me for an x ray, which is at least something. I was and still am very up set upset by this. Should I still visit him for results and tell him how unpleasant he was.
