Hi everyone I have got my appointment to see Professor Harrison on 30th May. I am excited and really nervous all at the same time. I hope I won't be wasting her time but my lovely buddy assures me I'm not.
I was diagnosed with MF last October. Bit of a shock to say the least! My bloods are ok so I am on watch and worry. My reasons for asking Professor Harrison for a second opinion is that most days I suffer dreadful fatigue for at least 4/5 hours, my body really itches after showering and my anxiety levels are at an all time high. My local haematologist doesn't seem to think these symptoms are connected to MF because my bloods are ok. I went and got checked out with my GP (who knows Jack s***) about MF sorry about French she even contradicted me when I asked if it could be connected to it she said "you haven't got MS have you" anyway nothing else was found so only MF left.
I am going to the forum in Leeds and really hope to meet more people with MF.
Sorry about the rant....
