    its almost definitely for the best! the doctor who "rejected" you likely knows nothing about your condition and cannot help.

    Sorry to hear that you were rejected. I personally find it best to try to check specialists etc out (make sure they are fine with ME/CFS patients) before I go to them and that causes less issues as far as rejections go (over wise I find I get passed around dr to dr to dr).

    @Cinderella24 if you let people know where you live and what kind of specialist you are looking for, someone on PR might have some ideas to help you.

    Don't want to get too off task but what does it mean to be rejected by a doctor?

    Did the GP explain why the CFS consultant 'rejected' you?

    I see it as a positive, although it is annoying you have to wait even longer to see a rheumy. The fact you've been re-referred suggests the CFS service looked at your referral/results the GP sent and decided you don't entirely fit the possible CFS diagnosis. They must think a rheumatologist can help you or is best suited to help you. Perhaps rheumatological explanations for your symptoms need to be ruled out.

    I have been rejected by the CFS service too in the past - I'd already had M.E. for 18 years at the time this happened, but I had worsened a lot. Unbeknownst to me, I had another major health issue that needed to be dealt with, and the CFS consultant realised this and wrote to my GP asking them to send me to a different specialist. I was glad that she had picked up on it and didn't just get to blame everything on CFS (which can happen).
