After joining this forum and reading more about ME I went ahead and got a mitochondria function profile done with Dr Myhill. I'd been to see my new GP before ordering the test to see if she would support me in it - she (refreshingly!! ) said that she was open minded about ME and would be happy to receive the letter of results and take any action that was medically appropriate. I was overwhelmed and felt SO optimistic! The results came back last week which were interesting and gave me hope to have some sort of potential treatment plan for the first time. So I organised an appointment with my GP to see what she thought and whether she was happy to support me in treatment such as B12 injections, certain further tests. I was surprised to walk in and find my GP sitting with a copy of the letter with annotations on it, having obviously been through it thoroughly. She was kind about it (which in itself is a first for me with GPs in the UK in recent years), but used words such as "baloney" "no medical or scientific grounding" "hot air" to essentially say that most of what Myhill said was a load of rubbish! She said that some of it made sense and was important such as pacing, a healthy diet (but not stoneage, too extreme for someone underweight), sleep, certain supplements but she said that some of the tests were nonsensical. She said the advice given was potentially damaging. She also said that CoQ10 shouldn't be taken orally anyway as it just gets digested into the stomach! Basically she won't be supporting me with Dr Myhill. There was also a recently qualified Cambridge doctor observing who was also very kind but she agreed that it made very little medical sense beyond the basics. Now I don't know what to think. I feel so distraught and like all my hopes have come tumbling down around me. I just want to get better I hate this illness, I see or hear of old friends building lives around careers, buying houses with their partners as they have two incomes, starting families that they are able to care for. I want that too. Sorry. Had to share.
