I have had numbness mainly in my left foot along with back pain for about a year that is making me unable to walk unaided.
After seeing a podiatrist, an orthopedic consultant and a neurologist I was referred to a neuro surgeon in early October. I had an acknowledgement from them in mid-November saying that if I had not heard from them again in six weeks to contact them.
At that point I decided to see one privately but left myself on the NHS list in case the cost gets out of hand.
Today I phoned NHS appointments and was told that there are two waiting lists and that I am on each of them. I could not be explained why they have two lists but I am No 67 on one and 811 (yes 811) on the other and that the minimum waiting time is 35 weeks and I have only been on the list for nine weeks and four days.
It was earlier a six month wait to the neurologist.
