"What am I supposed to do?"

About: Arden, Herefordshire and Worcestershire

(as the patient),

On a night in Jan 2014, I had a sudden attack of bodily pain, every possible part of my body. Since then I have been diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. I also suffer from back pain due to multiple damage to my spine, a car accident. Also severe arthritis of my knees which causes partial dislocation. During the months since my ME began, I have many times been bedridden, feeling terribly ill. During these times I suffer from many symptoms and am very ill, sometimes unable to talk.

This is all made far worse due to the fact that my doctor refuses to come out to me no matter how severe my symptoms. I have suffered many days and nights of terrible pain. Also when I am able to go to the surgery, I am only able to have a few minutes with my doctor, when I need far more time. to even mention the state of my ME. This is also mostly overlooked anyway. When I complained, I was told that I can`t have asked for help as they have to come out. But I do and am still refused.

ME is a terrible disease. But I am virtually disregarded. I have waited for over a year for an appointment to see a pain clinic, they keep cancelling it. I just keep getting worse and rely nearly entirely on internet sites for help. Why I am denied help?

What am I supposed to do?
