I finally feel like I have a GP that is on my level. I went to see her yesterday and came out with a list of tests she wants to do and a list of medications to pick up (thank god for my pre payment certificate) and so the general problems I'm trying to sort at the moment (on top of the IBS, Anxiety, Depression and Fibro ....)
I find this one really strange actually! My hands have suddenly all started breaking down and bleeding. I showed my GP and she said I could be from the hand washing at work but I find that strange because I've been doing that for nearly 7 years now and never have a problem before. After doing a little research on the NHS choices website it can be cause by an allergen or an irritant so this gives me more of a reason to start a food and symptom diary to try and work out what's upsetting me!
She has prescribed me steroid cream and hydromel and we will see how it goes. Unfortunately while my skin is open I cant work clinically which has stressed me out because when I don't work I don't get paid. I am wondering if it is worth looking into admin type jobs.
Possible H Pylori Infection
This one bugs me. I have had this infection twice before and I don't understand why it keeps coming back. It makes it hard for me to eat much and my food just feels like it sits in my stomach and takes forever to move. If I do have this again I may end up having another gastroscopy to see if I have a stomach ulcer and I HATE gastroscopies.
If I do have this its a course of antibiotics and a retest a few weeks later. If you read this post you will know how much I hate antibiotics ...
Severe vitamin D deficiency
This one is one that doesn't totally surprise me. Its just a course of tablets and regular blood tests to check my progress.
Anyway, that's what's going on with me right now! I am actually looking forward to starting my food diary and trying to work things out. I'm also working on some stress reduction techniques such as yoga and meditation.
