For the first time in four years I have a fasting blood test tomorrow morning. This will be followed by a consultation with my GP in about two weeks. I will be asking about itching, which of recent is much worse, dry eyes, indegestion tablets and joint pain. I have read many posts which have helped me put on paper some sensible (I think!) comments and questions.
My first GP put down my symptoms to empty nest syndrome (he moved surgeries) the second GP (now retired) intimated that I was an alcoholic because I was a drinker so I am nervous about interacting with the GP with whom I am now registered still with the same surgery. The first specialist I saw was well informed and was very good and easy to deal with but the second chap I saw I felt rather belittled me and my condition. I know I am lucky I am not tuly suffering, I am not at death's door but I do have issues.
Does anyone else find it difficult to interact with their medical people? Does your medical professional keep a watchful eye on you with regular check ups. I suppose I should be more pro active but because of these experiences I have not placed a high importance on my PBC and have not asked for more to be done, so down to me entirely but I do wonder how other PBC sufferers get on.
