Lack of professional help
My arthritis started badly in knees and hips last spring. X-rays show severe degeneration of hips, knees and lower back.
I only found out these results by looking at my records on line despite the radiology dept flagging up that GP needed to contact me. Since then I’ve had a couple of 5 min phone calls with GP and a referral to the MSK team, 3 months ago.
I chased this up via my GP as I really want to talk to a specialist about what the results mean now and what my options are now and in the future. Instead I’m getting a phone call from a physio despite me telling the GP that I already see a physio privately who herself said I need to see a specialist.
Pain is getting worse and I feel very low
