I read with envy of those people who have a GP or Rheumatologist who understands PMR and the sometimes necessary convoluted journey on steroids.
I was recently referred to a surgeon by a GP in my practice for an ingrowing toe nail (I didn't think it was ingrowing). When I saw the surgeon he said he would not operate as it wasn't ingrowing.'
The experience has hardly improved my faith in my GP surgery!!!
