Hiya,, I think deb has suggested correctly that a urine check and probably a blood test to check all is ok is quite important, just to ensure your body is coping as well as it can... a nurse can usually do this, but sometimes only on a Drs order..depending on your surgery, perhaps you could pop in and see another doctor if yours is away for a while... is your skin itchy too?.. take care, Claire XX
It is important to get a blood test before next week (especialliy as the resutls will take longer)!
Have you explained to the receptionist what the problem is and/or perhaps asked for a GP phone consultation. In instances like this its best just to speak or see any GP within the surgery not just your allocated one!
I had emergency bloods taken at my GP surgery by Nurse. The GP just told her they needed done and could not wait for an appt. The nurse was not happy as it was not precedure, but rules can be broken for emergencies!
Hiya.. glad you got your bloods done, pity about the wait though!!. I get urinalysis strips from the pharmacy and do my own every two weeks.. they are expensive to buy but very helpful when in the situation you are in.. it may be worth popping into your chemist, get a urine pot and pop it into your surgery for the nurse to test.. quite common practice in my surgery. Hope you feel better soon.XX
