A new doctor who is a revalation!

Postby juliem » Thu Apr 07, 2011 12:05 pm

Been to the Dr today. My fibro has been so bad thought I should see someone. Last year I had a TIA and was warned never to just assume everything is fibro. In fact because I did insist on investigation specialist feels I may have saved myself trouble down the line! Anyway back to today. Talked through stuff. There is diabetes in the family so tiredness, itchiness etc always a concern. She looked back through my notes and said "was anything done for your mild anaemia"? I said "what". I had had a blood glucose in Sept and my haemaglobin is down. More than that she said is it has always been so consistent before. Given I am on blood thinners and aspirin this is a concern cos of bleeding!!!!! So more blood tests. Also menopause wise doing test but also pelvic scan. Throw in at the end a hearing test cos my son says twice I haven't heard the door (music too loud I think:-)) Also back to see her in 3 weeks for talk and pelvic exam and then she wants to discuss the fibro. Felt today needed to sort out whether other problems intruding.

Wow what a Dr. she was nice too. Only seen her twice before. Once with my son and once for a frozen shoulder. Problem is she is very part time. Mind you maybe that is why she is so relaxed and helpful. Less stressed than the full timers.


So at least I feel I am being helped and she isn't putting "everything down to fibro". But takes fibro very seriously.

She sounds amazing :) Glad you found a nice Doc, shame she's not full time, but like you said, she might be more relaxed due to being part time. I saw a lovely female GP for my dyspraxia but she's part time now as she had a baby but I've found another GP who is good but he's hard to see as he's so good he's always booked up. Unfortunately the good ones are always harder to see :(

My G.P that I see for my fibro is part time too. I always wait for her and make regular appointments in advance to see her, then if I don't need it I can cancel it but if I do there's one made not too far in the distance. At the moment I need to see her regularly for my sick notes cos still appealing my ESA. Plus like to stay in the front of her minds for when they write to her for the ESA and DLA that I'm currently trying to get. Won't see anyone else with it unless I absolutely have to as she seems one of the only ones who really understands and accepts its real.
