I just went to my GP for an extension on my medical certificate deeming me not fit for work as I'm currently in so much pain due to suspected endo... I'm at the very start of the process to getting a diagnosis. I don't normally see her but did today as my usual GP is on holiday.
She was quite reluctant to sign me off for longer despite my managers & Occupational Health dept suggesting I come back when I'm feeling better. She sounded surprised I was off work with the pain & stated I must be bed ridden each day to be off work.
I just wondered those that have had quite judgemental and unsupportive medical professionals involved in their care, how you have managed this situations or feelings afterwards?
Luckily I'm having a better day today & I feel emotionally ok, but it's worrying to think of those having a bad day & not feeling that strong emotionally.
I know unfortunately we can come across these people but I guess I'm looking for advice for when I'm not feeling as emotionally strong.
