I visited the nurse at local GP surgery for an annual health check and was recalled for a second blood test. They said they were testing for a B12 deficiency and whilst waiting for the results I googled it (I know I know, don't diagnose yourself). Anyway, the results came back clear but i had so many of the symptoms that I made an appointment to see the doctor. Doctor not impressed when I said I had been on the internet and refused to listen to anything I had to say. In desperation I showed her photographs of my fingers when they turn white and she declared I had Raynauds, gave me a prescription and all but pushed me out of the door. I have not taken the medication as yet and it is now 3 - 4 weeks later.
My question is this? Should they not have done a blood test to confirm Raynauds and also whether I have any secondary symptoms? I don't know whether to go back and insist on blood test or just forget all about it and live with my painful fingers.
Thank you to anyone who can give me the benefit of their experience.
