This is my first post on here, so please forgive me if I fall foul of any rules of etiquette etc!
I'm a 33yo female with a history of AI problems, and I'm 90% certain that I have MS. I read a list of symptoms and it was like reading my life. You all know what they are, so I won't go over what I'm feeling. The issue I'm having is getting my GP to take me seriously. I've had two appointments where he pretty much laughed off my symptoms as "that's life" and told me to get more sleep (the first reason I went to see him was because I'd been unable to get out of bed for a week and the second because I was having Le Hermittes). I've called today for a follow up appointment (none were available) to say that I'd lost the feeling in my hand and had other symptoms, and the duty GP advised me to got to A&E to make sure I wasn't having a heart attack!
I really don't want to walk into another appointment and say that I've diagnosed myself off the internet, but I can't take much more of being fobbed off. How can I get over to my GP that I seriously think that MS is the problem, and get him to refer me for tests?
Thanks for your time.
