Today I'm feeling absolutely rotten. Rash on neck and swollen glands, sweating, swollen lower back and pain everywhere with a pounding headache and stiff neck. Ive slept all day and still feel tired. I went to rheumy this week and he honestly doesn't seem concerned. He took bloods and is sending me for physio for my back. How do I get it through to him that I feel SO ill because he just seems to brush me off. I'm fed up of trying to get some support from the Docs (although my GP is more understanding). I went to the neurologist as well because I have a tremor in my right arm, and he just said its stress related, I tried to explain that I am in terrible pain in the affected arm and my neck and I feel that could be the problem(I have a bulging disc in my neck) but he just seemed to think its stress and that's it. Gave me sleeping pills (which I haven't taken) and told me to carry on with the antidepressants. I just feel they are scooting around the problem rather than helping me to deal with it. Sorry for the rant but feel like crap and had a gutful of not being understood. xxx love to all and I'll probably feel better tomorrow, just having a low.xxx
