OK so I can't have any medication cos of allergies and intolerances. I have RA and OA, hypothyroid, osteoporosis coming??? coeliac and so on, can't have anything to do with aspirin or penicillin, local anaesthetics etc. Now I have just returned from the GP who would not really talk to me except to say no one can do anything for me. I said "I have private health care". No I can't send you anywhere". I asked if "anyone could look at me and let me know how to cope with feet, spine, knees, wrists, neck etc all twisting". he said no and showed me the door. Sometimes I wake and scream cos I have nothing at night it I worse. I can feel my neck almost giving away. The orthopaedic fitter said "he can't make shoes for me anymore cos of the direction the foot has gone into". I have lost all the padding on the bottom of my feet. NO ONE has looked at any of this except massage therapists No one at all ever. My toes are all bending etc
So my question is to all of you. I am depressed cos nothing is being done. is there anyone living near Skegness or a train travel away, who would be able to look at my bones and joints and answer question about what is happening. I am happy to pay privately. Is there anyone who I can see without going via this GP. There are 12 in the practice but hard to get appointments. Can't change as no other practises near us.
Can anyone help me. PLEASE can send lists of health problems and allergies to anyone who can help me.
GOOD NEWS ?????????!!!!!!!!!*********
With the help of various folk esp the NRSA I have found a rheumatologist who is happy to see me OK £180 but a small price to pay if he can at least explain to me what is going on. I see him on Monday Afternoon. One additional point is I was asked by the secretary to scan any test results etc I have. OK Blood tests this August etc and I have copies of everything form 1990. Worth the effort. I will add that it is 1989 I fist asked for someone to help me just almost like this email. Unbelievable,
