Well, it was a near total disaster!! The man was rude and horrible. It started off well. He looked at the page I gave him which had a history of when my problems started etc. and the last year and trips to A&E and my current symptoms. He asked lots of questions, asked about the rash on my face, asked if there was a history of Lupus in my family, asked if I get mouth ulcers "no, I get nose ulcers" "Do you get mouth ulcers???", looked at my blood results . . . then immediately told me I didn't have Lupus and that with a negative RF I didn't have RA. He then went on to squeeze and prod and pull and ask if it hurt . . . well of course it did he was squeezing so effin hard!! So he told me I had fibromyalgia. He didn't give me a chance to respond properly to any of his questions (sometimes a 1 word answer really doesn't suffice), he didn't answer any of my questions (I asked if fibro would cause the headaches "yes". Would fibro cause the headaches that come with the face pain and jaw pain "blanked") He totally disregarded the rash on my chest, hands and arm and told me they were just spots!!!!! I said what about my face? "blanked". He wrote out some slips for more bloods (to check my thyroid and recheck my CRP and ESR) and told me to give a urine sample to the nurse, come back in 3 months and the door was firmly shut in my face! No advice on what to do next, no advice on how my "diagnosis" should be treated, nothing!
So, basically I'm still at square one. No explanation or investigation into why my ESR is 3 times it's normal level at 60. Oh, but there was a trace of blood in my urine so that's been sent for analysis. I'm in agony after a day of too much sitting, too much standing, too much walking and too much stress!! I'm going to bombard my own poor GP for every little complaint over the next 3 months until I get to go back. I want every little thing documented! Sorry this is a bit of a ramble. Can't quite get my thoughts out properly. Very very angry :-(
