    I didnt mention my neck, wish I had now, I have no idea why she went for chest, I think because reumy has just discharged me back to her care and she said she thought he should have sorted it
    She may have not gone the neuro route as I have seen two in the past and have also had a nerve conduction test which came back fine
    was a long time ago though

    deebee they are probably trying to rule various things out, but again INSIST on a referal. It may indeed be internal, or skeletal or muscular....but we ain't doctors and they should be the ones to say what it is

    Go back to the docs and ask for reasons for being referred to the chest clinic and express your doubts that it is the correct referral. If possible see a different doctor. There is a possibility that it could be TIA's, not to frighten you. There is a piece on BBC news about them today.
    My mother was sent for her stomach when it was pneumonia and sadly she died because of bad diagnosis, it was too late for antibiotics to work. She was 91 though.

    Hi deebee,

    Remember nobody giving suggestions has medical knowledge but has perhaps experienced something similar.

    All my issues stem from spinal column nerve damage. Mine was due to neck trauma but it resulted in numbness and tingling plus weakness in upper limbs.

    Doctors aren't specialists and may take several attempts to try and figure out your issue or who to refer you too.

    Take a look at these symptoms and see if any look familiar http://www.ehow.com/facts_5008139_sy...ve-damage.html

    Hi Deebee do you feel more fatigued than usual ?

    ask your gp for a blood test it could be a vitamin deficiency B12 can cause pins and needles , weakness , numbness ect

    I get pain in my elbows a bit like when you've banged your funny bone followed by a sharp electric shock type pain on the outside of forearm down to my little finger and the one next to it then the pins and needles start followed by the numbness

    have a look at the symptoms and if you feel it could be something like this speak to your gp again xx
