    Welcome to the community @barryrita :) Sorry to hear this has been happening, as @thespiceman suggested, it is best to see your GP - I understand it is daunting, but it is the best option.

    Hi @barryrita - Welcome to the community. I'm sorry to read about your recent difficulties. I always think the worst thing about any problem(s) is not knowing; so it's best to find out. I agree that going to your GP to discuss this with is the best thing to do.

    While I completely understand not wanting to go back to the GP, @barryrita, if it is serious, it's better to confront it now. :smile:
