yesterday when i walked my dogs on the beach It was a real struggle and felt the pressure from the solid mass that is my abdomen against my ribs and it was very disabling. also had the tightness etc in my neck .the journey home was uphill and had to keep stopping to rest. felt pretty much the same all day. called surgery to get an appointment and went in there on way back from physio. told none.spoke with physio -a very nice chap-about my symptoms -mainly ribs and swollen stomach-and said when I see my rheumy he may do something as he is higher up the ladder than gps.like gps are higher up the ladder then physios.by the way my back was fine and didnt need any more treatment.only problem is my rheumy appointment isn't until mid march.thinkign should I just go back to A&E and refuse to leave until they recongise my problem is not in my head.(physio said he would mention what I told him in his letter to my dr).
