HI, I'm new to the group. Any advice would be really helpful.
I have suffered with anxiety for several years now. My GP has been helpful to a point. They are a big practice so it is hard to get to see the same doctor each time and really hard to get specific appoitnment time. They have in the past offered me anti-depressents and to be put on the waiting list for CBT. Other than this they haven't been very helpful.
Is this normal or should I expect better care? Whilst I understand that I do not have a physical condition my symptoms are very real to me and If I dId have a serious physical condition I would have been refered to a specicialist by now. Is there such as thing as a specialist in anxiety conditions within the NHS? and do I have a right to request futher help? they have never really even givem me a physical health check either, so I don't know if anything else is contrbuting to my anixety?
Thanks, any advice appreciated.
