Stuff hurts. 'Nuff said. DD
GraceB Member Posts: 1,595Sorry to hear this DD.
You are an amazingly strong lady who never fails to support everyone on here. Think you need a virtual (and therefore gentle) hug. ((( )))
Hope things settle for you soon.

Thank you ladies, you are too kind;. I am finding this winter far heavier going than last so can only conclude that things are worse with me than they were. Hey-ho, it is what it is and it will do what it will do. I have a form for knee Xrays, it's been in our Letters rack for over three years, but can't be bothered to confirm what I already suspect, I can't see the king (I typed point, my machine decided otherwise but I liked the utter nonsense of Lenovo!).

Stuff is still hurting (I have no idea why ) and to further complicate matters I have run out of my anti-depressants which is not helping. The surgery is playing hard-to-get with arranging an appointment to see a GP, apparently I have to see one to confirm that I am still arthritic and still in pain. GMS. DD0

Hello vikingqueen, it's very kind of you to post in support, I appreciate it.
I am pleased to report an improvement in the GPs' receptionist's attitude towards my request, I am booked in for next Tuesday at 8am. I think being there in person makes a difference, I had my routine blood test then lined up to see the woman who thinks she's a boss. Naturally I had to announce to the whole queue the reason why I had had the temerity to ask to see an actual doctor but they all pretended they hadn't heard (and let's face it, as most were in heads-down-phone-mode they probably hadn't). I hope there will not be any difficulty in receiving a new script for them, Mr DD has already had his Naproxen refused and told to buy ibuprophen OTC, with Brexit being blamed for the shortage. Wo-evah.
They had a new electronic log-in system, firstly one has the choice of fourteen languages (represented by national flags) and then, having specified the date of birth you have to choose the right month from a choice of five to complete the process. I hadn't realised Ipswich was so multi-cultural but I guess any conurbation within seventy miles of London will be. Yours parochially, DD.0
stickywicket Member Posts: 27,309Ouch, indeed. I hope Tuesday's visit is fruitful.
Actually, not just London. My previous hospital, in Leeds, had these machines. I rather liked them as they were much quicker than queuing at reception.0
