(as the patient),

I have been suffering with severe pain in my feet and hands for about 2 years. I have been seen by three NHS consultants and a private one. Each consultant gave a different opinion from the rest and none could provide a cure.

I have opted out to private alternative medicine and I am recovering although slowly.
