My 21 year old daughter has been ill for years and has seen a specialist who said she has hypermobility, this does not account for all her other symptoms. And when she went to the specialist with a list of everything a couple of years ago he said put that list away and just tell me. She was out of the door in minutes they just did not listen. Now she has been taken off the list. Other symptoms have started and after another visit to our local doctor, he said he is sure she has either Lupus or Inflamatory Arthritis, but until they show up on blood tests there is nothing he can do. He has agreed to do blood tests yearly! While my daughter is struggling to get on with her life, as she has no diagnosis. She has tried 3 jobs and just cannot manage to work. She started a job last week and is going to have to leave, she is totally exhausted and has pains all over, her knees have swelled and she feels like she has the flu coming on, which always happens. How do we get to see a private Doctor? or get a 2nd opinion? any help much appreciated this is ruining my daughters life as no one believes her when she has no diagnosis really.
