    Hi @diane01 :) 

    I'm sorry to hear your symptoms are still getting worse. Is this in terms of your FND, or are the symptoms of your menopause becoming worse? Or is it something else?

    I see @diane01. It must be frustrating not having a confirmed diagnosis. 

    Could you possibly speak to a different GP at your surgery? Perhaps they'd be more understanding, or help you to look into other options in the meantime? 

    Do you mind me asking what you mean when you say your brain feels 'odd'?

    I'm no expert and we don't give medical advice as such on here for obvious reasons but it sounds like refering you to a neurologist is your GP doing the right thing, all I can suggest is that you contact your GP's surgery and ask who he has refered you to and then chase them up to find out when you can expect to be seen.
    Hope you get sorted asap

    Hi @diane01 Aw I'm sorry to hear things aren't any better and it's understandable that you are feeling overwhelmed.  I hope the neurologist will be able to give you some answers as to what's happening and any treatment options available.  It's definitely worth chasing your appointment as @woodbine suggested and one option other than the GP would be to ring the neurology secretaries to enquire if they'd had any cancellations and emphasise your need to be seen. 

    Also, have you spoke with your GP recently about the impact this is having on your mood?  If not that's something to consider, as I know personally I find the waiting period to see a specific consultant/service stressful :(

    @Cher_Scope Tell me about it i have 3 appointments that i've been chasing up for months now & just feels like going crazy with it all yh i phone neurologist she just said if someone cancels it goes to the next person on there list which is understandable but just feels so much of a wait for me 10 wks seems ages when feeling so rough 
    Dunno where to start with my gp told her today this fatigued i've got is getting out of hand & she's like it'l be menopause

    @diane01 Ah, fingers crossed a cancellation crops up so you can be seen sooner.  The menopause can cause allsorts of unpleasant symptoms can't it?  And I'm sorry to hear it's making you fatigued.  This Menopause Support website has lots of helpful resources about coping and remember to do what your body says, and if you need to rest then rest :) 

    If any of your symptoms suddenly worsen then please seek urgent medical attention but in the mean-time our community is here whenever you want to talk.  Take care  <3

    Sorry to hear that @diane01 it does seem like a long wait but it's a bout the usual for "non urgent" referals, although i'm sure to you its urgent as @Cher_Scope rightly says if anything suddenly worsens then seek immediate help.
