I'm having such a problem with my very unsympatheic GP at the moment. She has always been pretty useless, (to the point where i'm questioning her medical knowledge), but it's just getting stupid now.I've been trying to get a medical certificate from her stating that i have IBS and that it is currently very debilitating (infact, it has been for almost a year).I have been back and forwards so many times over the last year, so she know's exactly what's wrong with me - i've had consultations with a gastroenterologist too, but she won't give me a sick note or certificate.I really need one so that i can claim benfits temporarily as i'm unemployed due to ibs and it's driving me insane!I can't swap doctor's as all my locals are full. She just doesn't seem to believe it's a real! I'm just venting really, as there's not much i can do, but has any one else had similar problems?I could strangle the dumb woman! *argh*

Your doctor is a jerk. You might want to consider discussing the issue with a gastrointerologist or a psychotherapist. They both tend to be willing to help with things like that as they are more informed than a general practitioner may be. Good luck with that and let me know if you need any more help. My dad could always find you a good lawyer in the area to encourage your GP along

i say we all march up in there and take a sh+t on your GP's desk. ALL of us. I'm game, except I live quite the distance and I'm scared to travel-but I'd try.
