    Hi David

    I am sorry to hear that your GP reaches for the script pad all too quickly and you feel that he thinks you are "making it all up". Now why would you possibly be doing that? :?: :roll: You have started up your own business etc, so it is obvious that you would not be going to the gps if you did not need help and support with your OA.

    I would keep going back and make him listen to you or change your gp to a more approachable one. Painkillers and anti inflams do unfortunately have that side effect of the dreaded tiredness. None of this is in your head and please do not let any GP say that kind of thing or even imply it. Sometimes we really do have to have the confidence to stand our ground with these medics to push through the barrier that is unfortunately there sometimes to let them know that we genuinely need help to carry on with our lives.

    Chin up and keep strong, we are all behind you on this,

    Hi again

    If you post your thread on the living with arthritis zone you will receive more replies, this is more of an introductory zone so not so many members call in here.
