I had my appointment this morning and what a complete waste of time it was. The hospital had lost my referral so he didn't even know why I was there. He wasn't interested in what I had to say. I took along a list of my symptoms I get with me and he didn't even look at them and just told me he doesn't like looking at symptoms as what I think and what he thinks are so different. He was just interested at looking at an MRI scan that I had done on my spine in December to see if there was any of my nerves being compressed and my result came back fine. He has basically said I just have wear and tear on my spine which is usual for someone of 42 and basically I have to just live with it. I know it's usual to have wear and tear at my age and the orthopedic surgeon who looked over my scan when I had it done said it was fine so I didn't need you telling me what I knew already. What about my stabbing pains, pins and needles etc etc (list to long so won't bore you)
I'm so angry as he wasn't even interested in any of my symptoms what so ever. He was actually more interested in my bloody long nails!!!
I tried explaining that I only had these symptoms after an accident at work and again he wasn't interested.
Looks like I will pay to go private. I cannot believe how rubbish the NHS is!!!
Sorry to rant but I'm really angry!!
