I gave in and went to the docs today as I can't stand the pain in my ribs any longer. I saw the same G.P who I saw the last time I went to the docs 6mnths ago. Back then I told her a long list of symptoms of how I was feeling and she reminded me I only had a ten minute appointment, she couldn't possibly discuss all of the symptoms in ten minutes so what had I actually come to the surgery for?..........erm.....the long list of symptoms you stupid mare!
Today I told her that I've been in pain for months and months with my neck/spine and other joints, but for the last five weeks I have been putting up with horrid pain in my ribs. She said to me: "If you have had it for five weeks, why have you come to the surgery today?"
WHAT?!!! How long does she want me to have it before I take up her valuable time with an appointment?!!!! She then said, "Ribs don't have pain sensations so it can't be your ribs. So what is hurting you then?"...........erm.....my bloody ribs you stupid cow!
I said, "I'm not being funny, but I'm not a doctor, i don't know if ribs can actually hurt or not, but my ribs is where I'm feeling the pain! She then told me nobody had ever walked into her surgery before complaining of this! She told me she didn't know what was wrong with me and prescribed a pain killer slash sedative slash antidepressant (but she stressed thats not what she was prescribing it for!) So it's official I'm NEVER going to the doctors again!
