Have you had difficulty getting your GP to perform tests after you have been diagnosed with me/cfs. Have you had to pay to get the tests done only to find you were suffering from another illness alongside the ME eg. diabetes etc. Have you, like me, found that you were wrongly diagnosed with me/cfs only to have to pay to find out I had fentanyl toxicity and bodywide irreversable severe ankylosing spondylosis. The ME Assoc have said that they are aware of the problems with poor diagnosing skills within the NHS when diagnosing me/cfs and have tried to address the problem, but appear to have had no reports of referrals and tests being denied to patients. Hence this thread. Is there a problem with reluctance to investigate after a diagnosis of me/cfs, or was it a one off with my GP's. If there is evidence of a problem I believe it needs to be addressed, shouted about, changed!
