I was concerned that I had a lump in my throat and had a camera x-ray carried out. Fortunately there was no sign of a growth and my condition was diagnosed as silent reflux.
When I arrived at the hospital, I was asked to fill in a questionnaire with no explanations as to what it was for. I had to grade my condition by answering several questions and ticking boxes 1-5 for each question.
I am not a doctor but tick box diagnosis is a step backwards, I expected better.
