i was diagnosed with hidradenitis suppurativa 2 months ago and I have been going to the doctors for the last 7 years and they have just fobbed me off with antibiotics. i was devastated when i found out as by the time they had investigated i am in the high end of stage 2. i have tried numerous antibiotics now and with the side effects i cannot take them. it is looking lke my only option is the operation. i have taken so many sick days in the past due to pain of the condition and i have enquiried about getting my medical records from my gp and I have to pay £50 and write a letter to the practice manager stating why i need them and then its up to them wether they grant me permission to have them or not. i want to try and take this further as if i was investigated earlier this would have been controlled and would not have got to this stage. for 7 years i was going and telling them there was something wrong i was made out to feel it was all just in my mind and i was only getting boils that had got infected. the pain was unbearable and i spent days not able to wear normal clothing
thanks in advance
