I have got Hashimotos Syndrome and Underactive Thyroid BUT what is concerning me at the moment is a misdiagnosis.
I get severe neck pain following an old accident, physio doesn't help. I have been getting muscle atrophy in my hands.
Because of the atrophy the Fracture Clinic referred me to a neurologist, who diagnosed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Functional Muscle Weakness.
The very same neurologist, previously misdiagnosed me with Migraines when I had a cateract.
I also have knee pain. She lumped them all in together and as I walk badly with my knees came up with the diagnosis, without even looking at my hands.
I appreciate it's not a neurological area but to diagnose is a pain for me as I don't agree.
I'm not sure where to go from here. I keep thinking either back to the GP, or private. If I get a second opinion I may just be back at the Neurologist and it may not be relevant!
Both the Fracture Clinic and the Neurologist want to keep seeing me, and the Fracture Clinic is very good, but I feel the Neurologist is way off.
My question is how do I clear this up?
