  • oh bless you how awful can you not go to see a different doctor at your surgery i saw a doctor who was awful changed and stopped all my meds and tried to say i had celiac disease an that was the problem i was furious i jus sat there numb i thought just nod your head and let her get on with it i left the room drove home called the surgery made an appointment with my normal gp for the very next day went and saw her explained all that had happened she was totaly bemused but could not say much as it was her work colleagure but she promptly put me back on all my meds xxxxxx

    so see if you can get toi see someone else you cant be treated like that bless ya and welcome to the 3 am club lol love diddle xxx

  • Take a deep breadth and now you have slept on it (or not) I hope you feel lighter of heart this morning make an appointment with another Doc before you go write everything down what happened how you feel and where you hurt (It is not just in your mind) take the list with you . Slowly explain yourself how you feel and hopefully another doc will be more sympathetic and sort your meds out for you good luck hun x gins

    NEVER GIVE UP!

  • Keep fighting never ever give up. annexx

  • Hi Jan

    I am so sorry for you are feeling but I am in the exact same position. I want to change surgeries but I am waiting an appeal date for ESA & I'm worried another Doc will not know my history. Although my Doc wont give me meds she is backing me up re ESA? However after watching the programes last night I'm not holding out much hope & think maybe I should just move now as everyone seems to be recieving zero points.

    I hope you calm down & begin to think rationally & maybe a change of surgery is what you need too. I feel like I am beating my head of a brick wall but I do need help. Its either I fight on or end up with a nervous breakdown.

    Dont give up, we have to fight for our rights & to be heard.

    Luv & Hugs

  • Dnt give up change docs.keep fighting dnt let them win.you need some pain relief.

  • Plz dont give up remember gps are human and as in all walks of life you will get the good and the bad. Thats where personal choice comes into play - gps are providing a service and like all other services if ur not happy vote with ur feet and walk away; find urself a gp who is more knowledgeable about & in tune with fibro and its effects and treatment. Dont let your gp's attitude colour your judgement there is no better expert than a patient and you know best!! Pls dont sit back and accept shoddy treatment ur worth so much more!!!!

    Take care x

  • I had an anesthetist who tried to belittle me this way. I insisted on a change of hospitals and the next doctor wonder what the last one had been on about! I have seen good and bad..I am thankful to be a health care professional and to understand about pain management, and what my rights are. This goes a long way but it is still tough. There is a very renouned pain management expert Margo McAffery who said 'pain is what the patient says is is, existing when he/she says it does'...next time you tell them that...it will soon knock them into shape, futher more look at the patients charter and your doctors codes of practice and NICE guidleines and be alarmed at your entitlements.

  • Jan we all sympathise, we are all in the same boat and have been in your situation at some time or other with Fibro. I am so pleased you are going to see your GP on Thursday and you're taking lots of info with you. That's fighting spirt! :)

    I am sure your hubby and son understand your frustrations. Make sure you get a couple of nights sleep and rest as best you can before your appointment.
