"Frustrations with treatment plan"
Posted by Mycroft (as ),
In early 2010, I started to suffer from a range of symptoms for which a number of diseases could be the root cause.
I was sent for very basic tests to eliminate some of them and was diagnosed with a neurological condition. I am very annoyed & frustrated by the GP & Consultant's inability to help me with the condition they think it is. It has been going on for nearly 2 years and there has been no treatment found for me that will help with the pain, discomfort, inability to function, inability to walk far, inability to work, inability to sleep properly and to cope with the range of sysmptoms that I am experiencing. I think the symptoms are more like another couple of diseases for which there is a treatment plan. However, for my condition, they said there is no treatment plan, so it feels like they have sent me home to get on with it without any medication, help or support. The GP has offered me valium based sleeping tablets/antidepressants which I refused.
The symptoms are very like other diseases but I believe they have not put any other tests through because of the expense, not only of the tests but of the treatment plan, if it was actually revealed that a different disease is at work in my system.
I seem to have been left just to go home and suffer alone. The NHS could surely do a lot better that this for their patients!
