Had to go back to GP this morning following low folate phone call on friday, couldn't see GP saw last week, instead saw my actual registerd one. Wow, i'm completely flabergasted to say the least.
Firstly, asked when my problems started so when said it seems to have followed on since Dad's death and other issues i had around that time, her response, oh well, you are of an age where its quite normal for parents to die, that shouldn't have been a big suprise!!!
What the beeeep!!??? I'm sorry losing my dad was a shock, and yes i grieved, am i not normal for doing that?? How can anyone, never mind a doctor say that?
Followed up by saying oh and odd aches and pains are just you getting older, i just looked and said i'm 43 not 93. She herself has aches and pains and therefore i should just go swimming more often and lose more weight (i've lost 9 kilos over last year) that will sort me out.
She doesn't agree with GP i saw last week who did think there is likelihood that i'm suffering with fibro and/or cfs. Wouldn't answer any question i had regarding how can general aches and pains cause migraines, earache, low folate, serious fatigue and dizzy spells, along with significant pain in my ribs, shoulders and hips.
I've come home completely and utterly flabbergasted. Have no idea what to do now.
