. The culture of treatment and attitude to care is a thousand miles apart between here and there. Not just attitudes, medicines even ordinary ones like prescriptions for sleep, and treatment for inflammation and of course testing, which is why I made the journey in the first place. My GP, a good one by most standards here, has not heard of Dr Klimas and thinks I have spent alot of money to see a quack to help me with something that does not exist. She thinks I am stressed, somatizing, in need of another sort of tricyclic antidepressant. Although Dr Klimas has been over here to lecture I don't think she realizes the full situation in the UK. She asked for a phone number so she could give my GP a call. GPs here don't take calls not even from famous specialists, there is only a main reception telephone. Next she asked if she could email my GP the results, also no, GPs don't do email. There is no fax machine either. The only way to send information is by post. Suddenly it is obvious we have been getting nowhere here, GPs are marooned in their surgeries with no access to the outside world, someone needs to start a rescue party to save them from the technology of the 1970's :worried::Retro wink: Still, I regret nothing, a simple validation by lab test is worth everything. We are moving forward inch by inch.
