I phoned to get a Drs apt as I feel so unwell. Had a UTI diagnosed, taken anti biotics, no symptoms, however I have extreme back pain. I think I have a kidney infection. I feel sick, can't eat, the thought of food makes me feel sick. I have the shakes and am really weak!! obviously as I have no food in me.
I have lost so much weight and I am actually worried about myself for the first time ever. Pain i can manage, a diagnosis I can manage, however not knowing what is wrong when I drop to 7.5 stone and my bones are sticking out of my body and I look unhealthy I can't manage!!!
So I ask him what he can do, he said Oh I don't know what is wrong with you, come see me next week!!! bring in a urine sample again, even though I am telling him I have blood and protein in my urine from a dipstick test.......BUT the best bit was the fact he told me I was depressed which is why i couldn;t eat etc. i told him I wasn't. i now what depression is. He told me he wasn't going to argue with me on the phone but in his opinion i was!!!!! How supportive is that!!..not!!!!
I have no faith in the NHS, he has put my back pain down to neuropathic pain and to go to the pain clinic. My work Dr told me I need to see a back specialist as I have never had an MRI and I think I need to see a urologist and have my kidneys looked at!!!!!!
Sorry rant over!!! xx
