"In a lot of pain and still trying to get referral"

About: General Practice

(as the patient),

Well here goes. I've been in pain for as long as I can remember. When I go to gp he keeps throwing tablets my way despite asking for referral. I feel I know my own mind (well most of the time). I had laparoscopy done end of 2013 by borrowing money to have it done privately. Every joint I own is sore, but all anyone can see is overweight woman who moans. I'm now seeing a psychiatrist and guess what more pills. He told me they'd cause weight gain! Hello, more weight.
