"Mental health history does not mean you automatically are anxious about your health"

About: Arden, Herefordshire and Worcestershire

(as the patient),

I have a complex history of mental health. I have developed many physical symptoms which some have been diagnosed by optician, dentist, chiropractor and bupa but still gp will not discuss my symptoms with me. They say mental health can cause anxiety about health. I am aware of that possibility but I am also aware that I have never had physical symptoms like this and just because of my past doesn't mean I can't become physically unwell. I am unable to work or sometimes leave my home. All I want is to be listened to and examined appropriately but this is not happening. Mental health history does not mean you automatically are anxious about your health. This is the first time I have been to this practice for advice as I live somewhere new- lovely place I may add.
