so yesterday i went to see a rheumatologist privately,he was really nice(i did see him a long time ago for a neck problem) approx 10 years ago and he recognised me which was nice,to cut a long story short ,he thouroughly examined me for the fibro ,he wants me to have some scans ect... i felt a bit awkward and said i could not at this time afford them,he said oh don't worry about that i will write to your g.p with recommendations and see you back on the n.h.s ,he was really sweet and seemed concerned( as i do have quite a few other health problems,he thinks i have something wrong possibly with my spine also ,so all in all i feel it was worth the £180 for the consultation also if he writes all his findings down i can't see why i can't maybe once again challenge the atos report and the dwp as the atos "doctor" in her amazing two minute feel of my body stated there is no tenderness in my body!!
even though there was evidence i have a left rotar cuff problem, (oops! starting to rant about dwp!!
i am still fighting with them and have absolutely no intentions of rolling over and letting them win, i ha ve a few things going on in that area so to speak,so i will let you know how i get on,but i really feel on a health point of view it was worth seeing the rheumy privatlely , x
