I thought i would update after the appauling experience with a GP on Monday.
I got a phone call yesterday morning from the GP i'd seen last week (the listening and caring one). They had the results from further blood tests and hip xray.
My bloods aren't quite right, issues with white & red cells, my hips are fine on the xray, but, they noted some issues with my spine at the lumbar area. My folates are still very low.
He believes it looks like arthritis in my lower spine, and i'm seeing the Rheumatology Nurse at our clinic on 24th Feb, who will then sort out referal to Rhuematology at the local hospital. They've finally given me a lots of pain relief to help, until we get further answers. He is still concerned that arthritis is not the only issue going on so standing by his original thoughts of FM and will be investigating further. He wasn't overly impressed at the GP i'd seen on Monday (i dread to think what she'd put on my notes, but could tell he wasn't happy), and i will be under his care now for everything related to this.
So it wasn't the best news, but strangely, i feel happier, and finally feel someone is on my side and that all my problems are most definitely not in my head, there is something wrong.
Hope everyone is okay, thoughts with you all.
