Still awaiting diagnosis

I started with symptoms nearly 2 years ago but me wasn't suggested for 10 more months as I'd just had a baby.I'm still awaiting various referrals in the ruling out stage as I'm more breathless than doc would like before I can have a referal for me clinic.I'm exhausted and clapping weight on which won't be helping and makes me feel even more useless. My question is how much longer till I can access the help I need or is it usually such an uphill struggle even when they're aware enough to suggest me.

Thank you

My GP suspected M.E. pointing me in the direction of the Canadian Consensus Document:


Anyway it was only after seeing a specialist - Dr William Weir who diagnosed me that the GP fully accepted it.

Dr Weir advised that I:

Avoid Gluten and Dairy


Take Omega 3 oils


Take Vit D supplements

Hope you get your answers soon.

Take care.
