Hi, I'm a newbie and trying to find some info before I see the new gp...
Has anyone who self treats for Addisons been given an emergency self hc injection by a gp? Solu cortef 100ml.
I'm fully diagnosed with the disease and supply my own b12 Methylcobalamin injections, cortef h.c and foricot. I'm going to see a new gp next week to register my private test results and Addisons so they have that info for an emergency. I m hoping for 2 outcomes, 1 to be given a script for an emergency injection as I travel in remote Wales and climb there too . 2nd to be registered with the ambulance service as a high risk priority service user.
Anyone one else gone through a similar story or knows if the gp s will give an emergency injection to people taking hydrocortisone anyway just because the risk of death if an emergency crisis does happen like a car crash or severe bug?
