My partner also suffers with a chronic condition resulting in him having several frequent hospital appointments,
For the past two weeks he has been in agonising pain.Unable to reach his consultant I took him along to our GP.
Explaining the symptoms the GP's response was, and I quote;
'well if I treat the pain it might inflame your condition, so best you put up with the pain'.
I complained and demanded a second opinion, fortunately the second GP was humane and dealt with the problem........24 hours later!
Why Oh why do I feel I am always in battle just to get a service I should have without fighting for it.
