Gosh it feels like I'm being passed around by medical professionals....

Noticed regular high temp last year. Mentioned it to GP this year as was there about shoulder pain. Load of blood tests reveal nothing except raised CRP levels. GP said I probably just have a natural higher CRP level.
Referred me to a Haematology department. They essentially said they don't normally see cases like me as usually cancers only.

Talked about my temp which gets to around 38.4 every day. Also makes me feel unwell when it's that high. I get so fatigued. He was brilliant but essentially said he didn't know what to do with me so ordered a ton of blood tests. Said possible autoimmune as shoulder pain could be linked.but also said it could be nothing and my thermometer could be wrong. Also said they may offer a CT scan but don't want to at the moment as lots of radiation. He also said he may just refer me on as not the normal things he sees. Now I have to wait 6 weeks for my next appointment.
