Hi, I have had quite severe pain in my left breast and have swelling in my left armpit. I saw a g.p. a few weeks ago about it, but because she was running half an hour late, she didn't really examine me properly, gave me painkillers and said to come back in 2 weeks..couldn't get me out the door fast enough..sufficed to say, I left in tears.
Anyway, on trying to get to see a doctor last week, the receptionist started going on about putting me down for a phone consultation, she wouldn't make me an actual appointment so I told her not to bother.
(Long story short, this was a new practice I registered with as my previous g.p. was less than helpful, and mis-diagnosed Trochanteric Bursitis, putting it down to a muscle strain for 18 months).
So, does Mastitis need treatment, or does it clear up eventually?
Pain is nothing new to me, lucky I have a high pain threshold.
I will be trying to get an actual appointment again soon, but am wondering whether or not to change g.p. again..
Thanks for any advice..
