Just wanted to share with you all
attended work health assessment today with a private medical company due to being of sick for 12 weeks .Very understanding GP who says I have been treated appallingly by my GP practice and urges me to make a complaint .Due to myself having to request blood test for PMR and GP informing me bloods came back within normal ranges .Only to be told 3 days later by another GP inflammation markers where raised in bloods .Previously to this I was not offered blood test as routine bloods for underactive Thyroid had been done in May .If only GP had done his job maybe I would have started Preds 10 weeks ago instead of 5 .
I know I should make official complaint but how will that effect my care I have been with them for 61 Years and even if I changed practices who's to say things would be any better. So I have decided to speak to my GP when next I see him and ask why he did not pick it up .Hopefully this will improve the care he gives me
Private GP today said any medical Student in their last year should have been able to diagnose PMR as I have all the classic symptoms for the last 5 years I have been diagnosed as having CFS
by all GPs in practice .
But the good news is in my medical report it will state diagnoses PMR that it is a long term disability and as such I am protected under the Disability law and will not be fit for work for at least the next 6 weeks.
I know I should take the complaint to a higher level but it will only cause stress and I don't have the energy and certainly don't need the stress .
Their is a light at the end of the tunnel after all.
So all you fellow sufferers I feel it is a giant step forward
Best wishes to you all
