Recently saw a works Dr who reviews my condition as I'm on restricted duties. Suffer with Sciatica. I work full time . I have mentioned I have Et and was surprised when he said or believed my condition not to have any symptoms that would affect my health. I appreciate symptoms vary but when I disagreed with him he said you just get on with it. The condition doesn't affect your working day.
Am I wrong to think this Dr is wrong.. He couldn't understand why when my platelets had gone from 550 to 1124 in 3 years i was sceptical thry would go down .
Has anyone else suffered this lack of understanding or is it me. I havent had a day off because of this but I get very tired. He made it sound like ET was like having a cold.. it will go. I pointed out it's a condition not just an illness.
I am due to retire in June next year age 54. Just can't believe the lack of understanding on this disorder.. and the effect it has on daily life
