Post Brexit silence

Just wondering if there's anyone living in France (or elsewhere in Europe for that matter) who has sensed a change in attitude from their doctor since last week's vote. I have had my normal consultation and got a prescription for a changed dose of T4 post a blood test. Also got told a probiotic would sort out my IBS and that was added to my prescription although was one not covered by my insurance so had to pay 8 euros for it. Since then I've been writing emails and ringing the surgery to see what she is going to do about low B12, low D and low zinc and high saturation coefficient for transferrine. I just get rubber-eared. Have copied results to my consultant endo....same thing. I normally get a rely, even if I don't always get the reply I want. This time it's like there's a wall of silence......what's going on? Anyone else had anything similar happened to them? Maybe ...just need to be vigilant.

Which vote last week are you referring to?

When the article 50 bill passed through Parliament the amendment that was tabled to give EU residents in the U.K. easy access to permanent residency status was defeated. A leaked European Parliament report (Guardian covered this story) showed that there is growing bad feeling towards Brits abroad because non-nationals are being used as bargaining chips. The vote won't have helped !
