Well you may or may not remember reading about my woes last week,I had a really painful & swollen neck,felt ill with flu like symptoms.Go to the doctors you all said.I had to wait a week for an appointment which was last night,what a waste of time. I was in there all of 5mins 3 of which was taken up with her telling me all about her wedding (I kid you not). She couldn't tell me if the damage to my knee was due to RA,the results were in from the MRI scan,I would have to ask the consultant,she wasn't interested in my neck,it's still swollen,she didn't even look,again ask the consultant. I wanted to ask her about my legs from the knees down I keep getting terrible muscle spasms which is making it very difficult to drive & sometimes even walk,I had to turf some youngsters off a bench,so I could sit down,I wanted to ask them for a swig of their beer but I thought that would be pushing it! My feet are very swollen & I've got to go out & buy a new pair of shoes for the wedding next week as the ones I had no longer fit. Anyway I could tell she didn't want to know. I told her I had decided to take the meds after my sons wedding next week,so she proceeded to tell me all about her own wedding, I've only seen this doctor three times before. I'm really worried about the wedding,such a long day & I get so so tired & don't feel that anyone truly understands how ill I feel,not even the doctor. Thank you for letting me have a great big moan x
