Hello to all

Hi I've just joined this in hope there maybe someone close or a group near Pudsey leeds? as my wife like a lot of you poor people has this dissabling condition and would like to know is there a great doctor near us that totally understands and helps you as much as they can?

As our Dr will be retiring next year and she needs to be understood by a Dr not just fobbed off like a lot of them?

  • Hi Gazza.....There is a way on here to find out who lives in your area and how many miles they are away.....but brain fog forbids me to tell you!!!!! I am sure someone can help. Best of luck with the new doctor....he/she may be brilliant on fibro problems....

    If you go into your search engine and type for Fibro Support Groups in your area I am sure you will find one.....Hope you find your answer very soon. x

  • Hello Garry

    Welcome to the forum 😊 What a wonderful understanding husband you are.

    Will your wife join us here on the forum do you think?

    I am sure she will find everyone very supportive but most of all understanding as we all have Fibro plus many of us have other conditions too?

    If you scroll to the top of your screen next to HealthUnlocked in green you will see your profile name.

    Click on that and you'll get a drop down menu. I think it's the fourth one down that says 📌 People near me.

    You can also look on our mother site fmauk.org and on (I think) page 2 there will be a list of Support Groups in your area. This may be the best way to find a good GP for your wife.

    Many surgeries nowadays have websites with a write up of what each GP specialises in. That's another way of finding out.

    I hope you are able to find someone for your wife. I am guessing your wife has already asked her existing GP (the one that is retiring) if he can recommend anyone?

    Wishing you all the very best

  • Thanks admin,

    I will try as I'm very worried she won't get supported by any Dr's.

  • Hello and welcome to our friendly fibro forum. We are a supportive group which can give advice, information and help with all things fibro and there will be the odd lighthearted post to make you chuckle.

    I do hope we will be seeing more of you and your wife around the forum.


  • Thank you kay,

    Its nice to know this illness is more spread than I imagined it's just a shame Dr's and governments do do a great deal about it..



  • Can I say that you come across a a wonderful, caring husband. I do hope that you can find a support group in your local area and some people nearby who know of a good GP.

    I realise how important it is as I have a wonderful GP for about 35 years and when he retired it took me about 18 months to "train" the next one and had just got him over to my side and really helping me when we unfortunately had to move. My new allocated GP is vile and everyone has said don't go to see her unless you are desperate. I managed to see a have a nice GP but I have a feeling if I am not careful he will be one who thinks everything is fibro related and I will have to push to have anything investigated.So personally I have seen both sides of the coin.

    See if you wife would like to join in with us as she would be very welcome. Please let us know how you get on.x

  • I'm in Bradford and have just lost my GP to him leaving the practice after he had helped with diagnosis and treatment since the beginning of my condition. I totally understand how your wife is feeling. I'm at the stage of needing to see the new GP but not looking forward to it. Good luck with either finding another good one or "training" another.

  • Thank you ladies for your comments she would love to but she has problems with her hands and voice sometimes so we can't have the speech recognition on
