Well, blood tests have come back as clear. Hospital still believe that my symptoms are linked and that I may be showing false negatives. The trouble is though my GP doesn't agree with hospital. The Dr in hospital wants me to come off tramadol and have gabapenten. Reason being she feels this would be better for my as it helps with neurologic pain. Also, she wants me to go on diabetic meds although I am borderline she says it will help my liver which is being problematic. So, go to GP and he disagrees. He took me off tramadol but insisted on me having simple codeine. He also won't give me metformin in liquid form for the diabetis as it is too expensive plus he doesn't believe I need it. He says he will take advice from a colleague and call me on Monday with his conclusions. Oh and should have mentioned that liquid form meds are needed as I have oesophagus dysphagia (a severe problem with swallowing).
I have horrid pain in the soles of my feet and ankles, also in my hands and wrists hands. He totally ignored the pain in my hands and wrists and says the feet pain is plantar fasciitis.
The hospital Dr asked the GP via a letter to send me to a rheumatologists, but GP says I need to see a physiotherapist.
When i left the surgery, i mmediately got in touch with the hospital Dr and asked her to discuss everything with my GP.
It is very unfair to be stuck in the middle. Everything I read about Lupus says that it can take years to diagnose. My numerous symptoms seem to suggest it is a possibility which is what the hospital feel but my GP is adamant that is isn't.
Sorry for the rant.... Just wanted to vent my annoyance with how I'm being treated.
