So where do i start????
I went for my appointment today the first in 10 years (yep 10 years) as 8 weeks ago I was feeling under the weather and went to G.P who done a blood test and was worried about my results. Well all i can say is what a waste of time!!!!!
I started to explain to the consultant that i have rheumatoid arthritis as well as fibro and she just looked at me as if i was speaking a different language......she didnt know anything about fibro and said i would have to go back to my GP and discuss treatment. Surely there is a medical practitioner in Cornwall that can help me and advise me on diet and exercise and how to manage pain relief. My local surgery has no doctor that understands fibro and the specialist team at my local hospital has no idea either. If there are any lovely people out there that live in the Truro area in Cornwall and have a good GP or know of one i would be so grateful to hear from you.
