Went to my GP today to have a med review after the pain clinic suggested an increase in my pregabalin due to working now and being left in agony at end of day.
This doctor who I haven’t seen (saw him as my gp is in hospital Ill)... he said “I’ve been reading your notes and can see some suggestions are made. I know you have a neurologist but I recommend you stop that and take up the advice from another doctor and just throw your sticks away as you don’t need them”.
I’ve heard most things but I’m annoyed that’s in my medical notes! So I just suggested
I would love to throw my sticks away but I’m worried I may accidentally hit that doctor when they are thrown.
I’ve gone from wheelchair to crutches to sticks to working again so I don’t appreciate these flippant comments as if we choose to be this way.
Will be speaking with my consultant in few weeks and won’t hesitate to suggest a note being added to my file for others trying to suggest their own thoughts when they don’t understand FND
I know I’m not the only person as so many have experienced this but just brush it off and focus on those who know the condition
