I am so fed up with my GP who already took so long to refer me so i can be diagnosed. I have endo and cysts. Unfortunately my pain is excruciating and comes before, during and a few days after my period. It's not just period pain. The pain is on lower abdomen - pelvis , lower back and down my legs so bad it makes me disoriented and dizzy. The pain also gives me depression from trying to cope with it.
I have previously written to the doctor about my unhappiness from her treatment. She still keeps Down playing my symptoms and conditions telling me what she thinks I feel instead of understanding what i- the patient is suffering and experiencing. It makes me feel distressed, hopeless and helpless.
She refuses to refer me to a specialist who are willing to see me but they need a referral letter. I also requested pain management sessions, she just keeps saying she can't help me further with the pain. I always leave her surgery crying and feeling quite distressed.
I need this sessions so I can cope with getting on with life. Especially when I start working. So that I am able to cope alittle better with the pain and still be able to work.
I am so psychologically, emotionally and physically exhausted. From this all. I can't focus/concentrate to do the smallest things.
Please for those with a helpful GP can you kindly recommend me. Because I don't want to end up with another unhelpful doctor.
