"waited over 2 months for nothing"

About: Queen's Medical Centre

Was with the neurologist about 10 mins only asked about the absences not the rest of symptoms sending me for a eeg but discharging me as it will probably negative. Said maybe I should be checked for an anxiety disorder! This is despite me being treated at Sheffield pots clinic for autonomic dysfunction (the symptoms can look similar to an anxiety disorder)incidentally I'd seen a psychiatrist who confirmed I don't have a mood or anxiety disorder. and Sheffield stating that my tilt test was anything but normal they also thought the absences were actually a lack of oxygen caused by my blood pressure dropping to much and issued a prescription for steroids which my gp has finally given me (they admitted to being sceptical about cfs and dysautoma. If you have autonomic dysfunction don't bother going to qmc try and get a referral to Sheffield for the first time in months I don't have constant fatigue after taking fludcortisone.
