Well after 17 days of pain & stiffness, I woke up yesterday and it had all gone. My leg still feels week, but I'm walking without a limp. GP phoned me back and was really "off". He was incandescent that A&E wouldn't do bloods, thinks that the blood levels will come back normal (which they will if it's psoriatic arthritis) and said to go back if a month's physio doesn't help and he will refer me to the orthopaedic team (I had a hip arthroscopy, labral tear repair a year ago on the same leg). Spoke to the rheum reg at work today and he said it sounded like psoriatic arthritis as did the physio and the A&E doctor. Think his professional pride is damaged, how can I persuade him to send me to the rheumatology team, or do I go along with his orthopaedic referral and let them tell him he's wrong? How hard can it be to get a diagnosis???
