Having been informed that my GP had left the practice i have had no choice but to seek the help of another GP. Talk about frustrating. I have had to repeat my complicated medical history for the umpteenth time. My main reason for wanting an app was to discuss my depression. A very unsympathetic ear awaited me.
I was told i needed to loose weight and excercise more, if it was that easy i would have done so before. I am crippled by back pain , am unable to work due to the phyhsical nature of my job and i do try to keep as active as possible.I have migraine and IBS ,depression and fatigue along with the pain of muscle spasms and many tender points.
I left the surgery feeling even more depressed than when i walked in. I have a prescription for tramadol to try and help the pain. previously been on co dydromol and diclefenic to no avail
The dr did look up fibromyalgia in her treatment book to find a pain killer that may help but she had absolutely no understanding of what living with fibro means .
I feel so upset that in her eyes i need to get on with life, i only wish i was able to. If this is the ongoing support available i dont know how i will cope.
