"My doctor"

About: Sheffield PCT

(as the patient),

i went to the NGH a few years ago and had an x-ray on my legs, and was told the pain i had was part old age and part arthiritis.

Then approx 4 weeks ago i went to see my GP about the same complaint,and i asked if it was possible that the arthiritis had got worse. the GP just said "take paracetemol". why wasn't i sent for another x-ray?!

the GP couldn't find x-ray results on the computer as she thinks i went before the day they put results on the computer.

so what do i do now???

my legs hurt so much not just in one place but all over and now and again my toes go numb.
