"Traveled from Carlisle and was treated like a liar"

About: Hospital For Tropical Diseases

The whole appointment was a total farce- I had been wrongly diagnosed with MS and was going there as even the Neurologist said my symptoms were not MS related. The movement on my scalp, eyebrows and lashes and basically everywhere there is hair on my body. Now I am experiencing hair loss lower and upper back pain, knee and wrist pain, sore and itchy hands, problems with my nose, ears and eyes and I have had to live with vertigo for two years. They treated me as if I was a fantasist didn't believe anything I told them,they refused to look properly incase they found something which would show up another doctor. They have left me in total hell!
