After writing a few weeks ago about how my GP essentially fobbed me off with 'its' your age' type nonsense when I presented with my symptoms I wrote a letter of complaint... Here is what they commented ONLINE
I had said that exhaustion was one of my symptoms, I'm a previously fit healthy, slim active woman who has exercised all her adult life, and when I told the doctor I could no longer do this, she told me to 'force myself'
"We have formally responded to this patient;- "Blood tests were performed on several occasions, we acknowledge the frustration of having medically unexplained symptoms and that there are limits to conventional medicine, we recommend that graded exercise is a very good treatment for fatigue."
Limits to conventional medicine?
I was not offered:
Vit D testing
Glandular fever or any other kind of immune system disorder such as ME testing
I was basically told my lot in life as a pre- menopausal woman is to get on with it! and not complain because " I look alright"
I have changed doc's since and they have orderered a barrage of tests including Vit D, antibodies and so many other things i've forgotten
Waiting for results and will post
