"Local GP - inability to diagnose a severe problem "

About: GP diagnosis

(as a relative),

My wife attended a young local GP. She has a history of severe muscle pains and stiffness in shoulders and hips. No history was taken and no physical examination performed. Blood tests were negative. Finally after many returns we changed our GP and polymyalgia rheumatica was immediately diagnosed and a successful treatment regime started.
