Doctors and other bruises

I am having various tests and analysis done with a range of doctors over the coming weeks so may not be as communicative as normal on this blog. Bear with me. Hopefully I will be back in the New Year fighting fit.

Well, good luck with that, John. From my own experience and that of others, one is sometimes better off compiling a list of your symptoms and signs and distributing it to your friends and relatives.

Another suggestion is that you embark upon a course of study via the internet. After many months, you may come up with your own diagnosis before doctors manage it.

Using a computer all day poses a lot of health risks. If you’re still sick and without a diagnosis within a short space of time, you might get an answer from us bloggers.

Thanks. However these are symptoms which mask an underlying issue; we just have to do the tests to find out if that underlying issue or issues is more or less harmless or something more problematic. We shall see.

Well, John, all the best! Hope the tests don’t come up with anything too serious!
