Shaina, many thanks for your response. It’s been very educational reading all the varied experiences on this thread alone.
Once my heads a bit clearer I’ll read through all the reply’s again and hopefully be able to investigate some of the suggestions. Since I’m in the UK I don’t have the same level Or variety of health specialists to consult. The main huge advantage of our National Health Service is that treatment is free of charge at point of administration (however all employed people up to retirement pension age pay National Insurance contributions deducted direct from wages- it’s certainly not a lot of money!) in Scotland where I live even our prescription charges have been abolished. Obviously the knock on effect is that there’s just not as much funding available for the NHS to provide the same variety of specialists as there are in some other countries.
Thanks again, very much appreciated.
