I agree that you should try to be honest with your doctor if you can.

Due to confidentiality they can't tell anyone what you say.

Also, the cause of your injuries could be relevant in the doctor knowing what kind of examinations and treatment are necessary to rule out anything of concern.

I agree with being honest. They cant force you to tell anyone else.

I am so annoyed. My GP cancelled my appointment because she had an emergency home visit.

But tbh pretty much all the signs of concussion have gone.

I'm sorry for being a waste of time and space.



PM me if you want a PDF copy of the ICD-10 or the Mental Health Act 1983/2007. I ALSO HAVE THE DSM-V BOOK and am a pharmacology student.

I have a visual impairment / neurological problems so I need people to type in clear text and no funny fonts. Also excuse any typos, my vision blocks things out.
I have autism and have problems communicating, PMs included.
Just becasue I type well doesn't mean I speak well. I am only part time verbal.

Oly you didn't waste any time or space at all hon. I really think you should make another appointment with your GP as soon as possible to rule the concerns that everybody else has mentioned. It's always better to be safe than sorry where your health is concerned.
I hope you're okay.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.

Thanks Kiran =]. I will try and call my GP tomorrow. Failing that I will try and get into contact with my psych as all psychiatrists have medical training (they've done a medical degree), so I'm hoping she still will remember something from her student days. My GP is very hard to get hold of.

So sorry about GP cancelling appointment - they should at least have offered to reschedule there and then.

I definitely think you need to see your GP. Have you tried one of the NHS walk-in centres instead?

If your GP is not very good you can change to a different GP. I know this can be daunting but if they are not very good, I think it is worth going elsewhere. Also, if other GP surgeries give you that nonsense about not being able to register with a different GP if you already have one in your postcode area, (as NHS GPs often do) it's rubbish as under the NHS charter you have a right to see whichever GP you like.

Good luck!

Yeah they should be able to remember stuff, as when you get admitted they check you over.

You can go to the walk-in centre if all else fails too. :)

My GP is v good at her job, she's just extremely busy for that reason. Tbh all my concussion symptoms have cleared and I do not have bleeding in the brain as I don't show any neurological signs, so I might leave it, but I will tell my social worker when I see her next week. So sorry for being a time waster.

Hi,

Glad your GP is good - good GPs are hard to find!

I have to say I agree with mystery of life and think you should get it checked out, just to be sure.

The GP may well say "you're absolutely fine" but that doesn't mean you wasted his/her time, it is just extra reassurance that all is okay and you can move on from this upsetting event.

As for how, I guess you could either call your GP surgery today and explain that you were beaten and that you'd really like a check up from someone. If they can't help you within a reasonable timeframe I think that you should just go to one of the NHS walk in centres.

If you can't get into your GP or a walk-in centre, you could always try A&E too. I hope you're okay Oly, thinking of you xxx



You can't lose hope when it's hopeless.
You gotta hope more,
then put your fingers in your ears and go,
"Blah blah blah blah!"


I miss you Pip ♥

Perhaps you could go to a walk in clinic instead if you want checking out?

My GP said I'm fine but she was a bit annoyed that I didn't go to her sooner. I'm such a waste.
