I went to the doc's yesterday and was seen by a new arrival to the practise.
I did my usual gibbering on at him about being sick of increased flare ups and not getting anywhere and not been to see any consultant in the past eleven years.
Then I had to take a breath.
He's just been on seminars on fibro and has a keen interest in it, he took the time to explain which drugs helped which problem.
I went wanting a magic wand but knowing there isn't one but at least he listened and didn't fob me off.
I have to make notes on different daily problems, sleep (or lack of it) pain, anxiety, stress, ibs ect...should be a long list of notes.
He printed off a load of fibro info and hints from the 'Arthritis Research UK' website. I have to back to see him with my notes and he is going to structure drugs that are right for me.
What a welcome change...here's hoping xx
