"lack of diagnosis"

About: NHS Grampian

(as the patient),

my god i still can’t believe what I’ve just heard. After posting on here a week or so ago about being ill for over 4 months I’ve went back to my gp and been told am imagining the pain and am depressed. I sat there with my mouth open and was so gob smacked i didn’t know what to say. I was sent out with antidepressants and in total awe as to what just happened.

I feel totally belittled and disgusted and feel like I’ve nowhere to turn now for help. I couldn’t possibly go back to gp clinic as they must think am some type of hypochondriac. The doctor said i don’t fit into any box with my symptoms so thinks its all in my mind and i must be depressed. I said yes am anxious as to find out what’s wrong with me but am not depressed. I was fine 1 day then the next i wasn’t.

Blood tests showed my immune system was fighting a infection which has obviously done something but because nothing showed up on a ct scan. Doesn’t mean am depressed, am just speechless and so upset by what was said I really don’t know what to do next either - live with the pain and hope it goes away or wait for what ever’s wrong to show itself and hope its nothing serious.
