So I'm angry with the NHS and it's handling of my case. I've been tired non stop for 3 years and it's gotten really bad to the point where i can't get through a day without wanting to take a nap or doing most things as my eyes are stinging so much due to tiredness. I requested a sleep study numerous times, only to be turned down. I was investigated for sleep apnea by taking a home pulse oximetry test overnight which came back normal. They never followed anything up despite me still complaining of excessive tiredness that was getting worse.
I've had a GP appointment today where I've been told the waiting list for a sleep study is extremely long and i might be better off seeing a neurologist even though i don't have a diagnosis yet! (pretty sure i have PLMD by the way, I've recorded myself in my sleep). I'm starting to get really angry with how long i have to wait to get a diagnosis and find out if there's anything else at play. If i had the money, i would definitely be going private but it's just a joke at the moment that this has all taken years and I'm still not being tested and being told to 'keep functioning and things should get better'. I feel like complaining to the group practice
