What an insensitive bunch :swear1: The NHS is full of them. The arteries in my heart go into spasm and a few years ago I awoke with the signs of a heart attack. The paramedics took me to the hospital as a 'courtesy' because I only have spasms and not blockages. I was discharged off the ward two days later with "your condition is a neusance and an inconvinience".

I have a friend who also suffers at the hands of a stupid GP. She has all the signs and symptoms of Fibromyalgia and because he doesn't believe in it, he refused to send her to a specialist and will not give her any pain killers. She has resorted to buying a tablet from Canada which costs her £110 a month. I can't remember the name of the tablet but it was used in America for FM and starts with a G. When you think you work all your life for the use of the NHS and it's not there when you need. I have spoken to her about paying to see a specialist, as I had to do over my heart, which is wrong, but it's the only way sometimes.

Take care all

HI
I think your friend would be better off to change her gp, is there not another one in her surgery who she could see?
If not rather than wasting her money paying for something she does not fully 100% know what is she buying over the net she could use the money to see a rheumy private.

IMO she should not have to pay for this and try to push her to see another NHS gp. :goodluck1:
