General Practitioner

I attended countless appointments over the coming weeks asking my GP what was wrong and that I needed some help to control the horrid symptoms. My right hand and arm had constant pins and needles and pain like when you wake up with a dead arm from sleeping on it. As a Health professional i knew in my heart of hearts it was MS.

I saw various GP’s (as they was the only appointments I could get) over the coming weeks, I shared my concerns it was MS but was told it would not be this and I am just worrying too much. I was taken down the clinical investigation pathway of having a “trapped nerve” in my arm, I knew it was not! I finally got a MRI scan after being referred to an orthopaedic clinic, once again was told on initial referral examination don’t worry it’s more likely a trapped nerve. I knew it would not be.
