Yesterday I was back at the Gp for the results of my blood tests and to have my bp re-checked as have doubled the dosage to 10 mg . First he checked the bp and said we will leave that for the moment as it had not changed, but he did say it usually takes between 10 and 14 days to see a difference.
Asked about my fatigue, which is just at the same level My moods, which are so low that there are days when I feel that I am a burden to everyone. My kids are great and they will do anything for me. It is my partner that acts and thinks that I am play acting, I do wish that he was more supportive. He works full time and because I could not return to work since my operation in 2011. That is when my health nose dived.
Any I deviate for the doctors. My blood tests on the whole were fine apart from a high white count and something to do with my liver.
So changing happy pills, being weaned from Amitriptyline to go on to Fluoxetine Hydrochloride as they my be partly the cause of my tiredness.
Asked if I have been assessed for my walking and balance for aids that may assist me. He is of the same opinion as myself that we are not sure whether it will be the ENT or neurology department who will do this. As my cerebellum atrophy is something that cannot repair itself.
Discussed my application for PIP and he said he would write a comprehensive report for DWP that they could pay for. I have to go to CAB as well and get a blue badge application form and he will fill in his part, to keep me mobile and not house bound.
Gosh, we did cover a lot, nice for my doctor to invest time in helping me in such a positive way.
