    Thanks :) Apparently he has a keen eye for missed or mis-diagnoses. I spoke to my NHS specialist today and she said if I still had questions regarding my diagnosis Dr Spickett is the man to talk to. He is apparently 'extremely thorough'. My mum tells me he wrote a paper on misdiagnoses and found that >40% of people referred to him weren't diagnosed correctly :eek:
