Hi everyone. So I'm just back from seeing the out of hours doc. Have had a dull backache for a week now and from yesterday progressed to a sharp pain on the right hand side of my back. Was worried I had a kidney infection. Don't have an infection and the doc asked about the diagnoses of ET after reading my notes. He said he think's the backache is same as aches and pains have in my feet and hands but that those aches aren't connected in any way to ET. My haemotologist also said pretty much the same thing a few wks ago when he told me I had ET. After reading and receiving lots of reassuring messages on this forum that lots of people have these symptoms with ET I am confused and concerned that docs don't agree. If not connected to ET then why do I have these pains 😑
