I have seen numerous doctors over a few years. My general practitioner has overall care.
I also have a rheumatologist, neurologist and cardiologist. However, i do not regularly see them my GP writes to them and I only see them when necessary.
I also see physiotherapists, wheelchair services, orthotics.
My asthma and allergy medications were all prescribed by a respiratory consultant a few years ago who I am no longer under as I am stable again.

Okay, Thanks for this. Can I just ask your imput on something else, i realise you cant see me nor have my full medical history at hand. But If I gave you a history and symtoms of:
Upto ago 11 no problems, asthma presented at age 11
Age 13 joint pains presented specifically knees going swollen, red hot and tender.
age 13 - kept falling playing sports, joints locking, grinding lots of crepitus.
Age 13/14 - identified leg lenth discrepancy, hip misaligned (no treatment given other than ankle and knee braces and orthotics)
Age 13-16 - same problems but started to present in wrists, shoulders, elbows, ankles. Given painkillers
Age 19 - ligament reconstruction in right wrsit due to chrnoic synovitis, tear of triangulofibrocartilage etc.
Age 20 - diagnosed fibromyalgia
Between these years - asthma getting progressivley worse lots of resus admissions, struggling to control it.
Age 23- diagnosed dysautonomia - pots and tachycardia
Other health conditions diagnosed inbetween these dates.
Progressively getting worse, developing foot drop, loss of deep tendon reflexes in knee and ankles, pins and needles in hands and feet, burning pain in hands and feet and still swollen, red and hot knees.
Family history -
Grandma - COPD,Asthma,osteoartritis
Grandfather - MS
Mother - skin Cancer
Father - Asthma
My questions is - do you think my diagnoses make sense? I have felt my gp rushed into diagnosing fibromyalgia and putting everything along with it because i was in pain. But I had pain before this diagnosis, fibromyalgia is not progressive, should not cause foot drop etc.
Kind Regards ***** ***** needed I am happy to pay for a more detailed response.
Oh My apologieis
Does this mean i need to finish this and ask another question?
