Finally plucked up the courage to go and see the docs again – well, actually plucked up the courage 2 weeks ago, but it takes ages to see our GPs.
First time I went last year, I was told my breathlessness was nothing to worry about. One X-ray confirmed to one of the GPs that I was in fact a malingerer (although he didn’t use those words). A case of ‘scrotal pain syndrome’s was confirmed (the term used when they don’t know what’s causing it, apparently).
A year on with the same symptoms, blood tests this time came back within 2 days with something I ‘shouldnt be unduly worried about’ – however, it does require an urgent urology referral. I guess we’ll see what the next two weeks brings…
