what is it with GPs and Consultants, just had my three month check up and thankfully my lupus is still mild as of today.
But i told him that i was having really bad IBS again and can t seem to get it under control,of course he immediatly dismissed it as not his problem and to go back to my GP.
i then told him my hips seem really sore and could it be my IBS causing it and he didn t even look at me and grumbled no er no i don t think so.
i left feeling so frustrated i just wanted him to turn around in his chair and for five minutes just listen and let me rant and moan and then give me a little advice.
i then went home phoned my friend who is a nurse at A E and she told me that if i have hip inflamation then the pain and stiffness can be felt in the groin area and the upper thigh area and the lower back and even in the bottom.which is all the places im feeling it.
my point is thats all it took was a little bit of information to stop all the worries that something else is going wrong with my body.i was having thoughts that i had gyne problems or gland problems because of the groin area.next time i go i will make him listen he was even constantly yawning and said sorry im tired i have a young son who has kept me a wake last night.i almost said well you should try and work with lupus fatigue. GRRRRR moaning now over thanks for listening.
