I have ms iv not seen my neurologist in nearly 2 years I recieve an appointment but everytime it is cancelled another appointment is given a year ahead this has happend several times.
I have got worse over last 18 months id tried contacting secretary as well as my GPs with no avail. My care has had to be my GP who referred me for re assessment as id been so poorly i saw a neurologist who doesn't know me to tell me i hadnt got worse yet iv got to the stage i hardly venture out im so fatigued. I found the Dr rude intimidating literally waved off all i was trying to speak about. That day i felt like just a number. I was informed i have secondry progressive ms which id never been told. I bacame stressed upset while with the Dr and cried when i got out. I would not see this doctor if he was the last Neurologist left. Harsh bed side manner and it appeared he wasn't intrested in listening. At no point while having ms for many years have i ever been offered treatment only certain pain medication and other trial and error medication. I would rather now have an option to choose another neurologist and consultant as i cant get an appointment anyway. This has caused me and my grown up children so much upset to If its ok.
