Ok so may be a slight exaggeration, but being diagnosed with so many other things before the actual correct one because gps can't be bothered to listen to you anymore is slightly bothersome.
How many others have been told any of the following.... Ms, anxiety, agoraphobia, depression, it's all in your head, hypochondriac, labyrinthitis, it's your blood pressure, I don't know, and the best one yet... we all have pain in our lives we just have to get on and deal with it!
I've only had an xray done so far, and the gp I spoke to about that doesn't agree my dizziness and cross eyes are related, and isn't even sure that my numbness in my arms and hands are from my neck, but I give up seeing them now. Off to see a neuro in the new year and hopefully he'll order an mri because no one else will.
Apart from my rattling on, has anyone else also suffered with (been diagnosed with) costochondritis too? I've had it so many times in the last ten years.
I'm still trying to work out if my ex husband is to blame for my neck issues, as it wasn't long after I finally left him 12 years ago that my neck started to shake (let's just say he wasn't a nice person and I got a burst eardrum to boot too)
But like so many other gp's my neck shaking was nerves and anxiety due to my circumstances.
I'm hoping that after 12 years and only being 40 now, that it's not going to get too much worse, but I'm not sure feeling like you're about to pass out and your vision totally going on top of horrendous pain can be much worse, or can it?
Not being able to pick up my grandchildren isn't something the gp's care about, or not leaving my house alone for four years either, but hey you have to laugh or the suckers get you down.
Here's hoping 2016 will be different eh... Doubt it lol
