Hi im new to this site i suffer fibromyalgia, underactive thyroid, acid reflux, hypertension, diverticulas and ibs, depression and fatigue.
I have recently had a medical administrated by dhss, i was seen by a doctor. I received a letter saying i had passed, and that i have been put on a back to work programme. On receiving this a asked for a copy of the doctors report which i have received, and boy am i upset. he said a got up from the chair in waiting room without difficulty and walked to the room ok [my sister had to assist me] he stated a sat in chair in room for 35 mins ok, then furthur on in report he said i was rocking in the chair [ i was uncomfortable] he made out i was nervous. he asked me to get on the couch [my ister helped me up im only 5 ft lol] he said i got on the couch unaided, also said i could squat and touch my knees which i did with difficulty. stated i looked unwell and tired, and unkempt. im wondering when he made this report they must think that we the person is not going to see it. One more point my own GP who is absoulutly a supportive and understaning man was not asked by the dhss for a medical report.
Im so sorry if this is long winded, but i hope this can help anyone who has to go through with this medical. On a last note he also stated that this lady will fit for work in the next 12 months also took all my hospital appointments and he never read them once had a skin cancer scare on nose , rhumatology and ent appointments having op on my nose this week these was ever mentioned xxx
