as i couldn't get an appointment yesterday-all gone by time I got through on phone and as my dog didn't want to walk far this morning probably cos it was hot or his age kicking in or both-got a bus to the surgery to physically get an appointment.came home fro half hour then went back for appointment.gp cheerful and said something like" surprise to see you so soon".had a positive appointment (nothing to do with on going issues)btu since I got home,dogs unenthusiastic,annie not eating and nestling close to me-constantly scratching and biting her paws-just lying about looking "concerned" and sad eyes.
feeling absolutely awful-drained tired weak persistent pelvic pain and pressure on ribs/stomach.forced myself to eat breakfast and a meal.tried to sleep in pm could not get comfortable but had to take myself to bed at 6 30 so tired and slept til 8.15.cannot get it out of my head it s somethign serious -from dogs' behaviour if nothing else.
dr arranged for blood test -on Monday and mentioned about gastroscopy -when last done -2 years ago-will he arrange another?podiatrist on Tuesday.
wasnt going to take dogs out this pm as weather too hot and me in so much pain btu he wanted to go and cos he only had a short walk this morning went for a longer walk-very slow and painful fro both of us btu to the local woods -nice and cool-going to suffer for it tomorrow.
I so just want an answer -why is it a constant battle to get answers-have symptoms acknowledged etc .received a reply from Pals re a complaint about the meeting with rheumatologist to discuss incorrect info in his letter and that it wasn't my rheumatologist that was there btu someone else.they are going to look into it.
