I have in the past been fobbed off by a number of doctors when i felt i need help only to find it was something after all. I was 7cm dialated when i went into hospital and i was told to go home i was not in labour yet as an example. It took 5 years to be diagnosed with poly cystic ovary syndrom but i vist with another doctor and she did it with two referals. So i hope anyone reading this can understand although i am maybe worried for nothing i am more scared they have not found it .....

I had a gtt test for diabetes and it came back 6.7 (can be linked to pcos) i am also over weight and cant loose it no mater how hard i try (another symptom of pcos) i am shakey tired and feel rubbish but told that i am okay. I then had pain in my left arm which felt like a vein blocked (like an internal buise) still tired and now aching. They tested my b12 and i was told 178 was not all that low just take some over the counter vit and come back in 3 months. The pain was worse in shoulders knees and arms and my heart started hurting and around back and ribs. Skipping beats and things. So went back they did more blood tests rhematoid factor of 40:1 showed up as well as crp (inflamation marker) of 16 again not really bothered to follow this up with any treatment. I went back and they agreed to refer me to a rhematologist in 3 months time. I am still waiting and remembered just before this all started i had an abnormal liver test which they just told me i was fat so it was fatty liver but did nothing to check further. I feel like something bad is happening to me but its just getting worse and worse and noone is saying i believe you even when i am getting abnormal results. I am really tired, and ache all over my chest often scares me with pain around my ribs and heart and i hurt more in the morning excersis do not hurt me infact it feels a little better but i have no energy to it. I am scared that one day someone will just say ahhh yes cancer etc month to live as i feel life slipping a little and i want to be here for my husband and 3 year old boy. I have doctors appointment to discuss this on thursday but i need any input anyone can offer now to take with me. I am not imagining this its in he results why can no one see.
Thank you for reading any help is greatly appreciated
