Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.
I think it is worthwhile to ask your GP for a referral since not all your symptoms can be accounted for by Fibromyalgia.
It probably sounds silly, but I tend to try to convince myself that I'm fine, because I want to get on with things!
I work full-time, and have no intention of jacking that it at 34!
That is a very good approach, and being proactive about one's health is also the right thing to do.
So, don't concern yourself that there is something serious going on, but an evaluation never hurt anyone.
So, if I mention all of my symptoms to him, he won't think that I'm time-wasting?
The Neurologist will not waste any funds on extensive testing if your clinical signs do not dictate it.
So, leave that responsibility for the Doctor.
It will be unprofessional of him/her if s/he does this.
Unprofessional and unethical.
Brilliant - that's all I needed to know. My GP is generally lovely, so I don't want to waste his time!
It was a pleasure.
Thanks for your help - enjoy the rest of your day.
