Hi everyone, i am worried about a friend of mine who has very extreme anaemia which they (doctors) do not seem able to resolve for her. On top of that she had a TIA about 6 months ago and another one last week end. She has collapsed a couple of times recently in the swimming pool (after getting out of the pool) through dizziness and sheer fatigue it seems. She is at her wits end and very frightened because no one seems to be taking her seriously and I think her Doctor is putting it down to her being a "certain age" 47 !! She also has problems with numbness in her legs, blotchy legs and numbness and problems with her hands. As I have Hughes, Sjogrens etc i cant help maybe seeing this in her but maybe I am being too biaised and reading too much into it. For her to go privately would be quite difficult (financially) but i need to try and help her see someone who will take her seriously and look for the real reason behind what is happening to her. She is very very down and tearful quite understandably as she is very worried that sooner or later she is going to have a major stroke and I share her worries there. By the way she lives in Leicestershire. Does anyone have any thought? Thanks Elizabeth
