Feeling hopeless and alone
@hgarm If you do not have a family doctor I will suggest you find one. A surgeon is a specialist. Try the family doctor. Not being critical in any way. A suggestion and a direction to go in.

I get to see a GP/family doctor in February on the 18th that's the earliest they had available. Unfortunetly it's not easy to see a doctor any more the wait lists are very long
@parus @hgarm When I was misdiagnosed by a Family Practice doctor I was told by a number of other doctors that when you are older you really need to have a doctor of Internal Medicine as your PCP. They are better diagnosticians, and more geared to older people whereas Family Practice doctors are generally more geared to young families.
