Dear Wrapp

Thank you for your reply.

I am very sorry to learn of the effect this is having on you. I was pleased to note however that you have discussed this with your doctor and I would recommend that you discuss this again with your GP who can then refer you to the appropriate specialist for further input/investigation.

In the meantime, if you do feel able to get in touch you can contact me on 01236 713065.

Kind regards

Melanie
