I went to get test results today 2 months after my initial consultation which was done by a wonderful Registrar I can not fault her at all! The specialist today was so uncaring and aloof... I was basically told I was a drug addicted alcoholic hypochondriac! !
He told me I had Parkinsonism and I understood him to suggest that really there was nothing he could do about it. I don't feel he even told me what it was except it wasn't like Parkinson's disease. I feel I was basically told he couldn't help me and that was that.
I reported I collapsed twice in the last month where my legs went out from under me going up stairs and getting out of the bath.
The Registrar I saw two months ago was concerned about my unstable high blood pressure at my initial consultation and asked me to keep a record until my next appointment. The specialist today took my BP and said "Yeah its high but your nervous about being here" I have been on High Blood pressure Medications for the last 4yrs! ! I told him I had kept a record of my readings since my last appointment and it seemed to me that he couldn't even be bothered to look at them. At one point my BP was 169/103 and 147/99 all recorded on my BP Machine.
I feel totally disgusted! I felt he didn't give a crap that I was using a walking stick and was having great difficulty sleeping because of leg cramps etc... I have Fibromyalgia and in flare and I felt he just fobbed it off! ! !
