... then, plus I have memory problems but my GP doesnt take any notice of me and I dont really get any treatment. anyone got any advice?
My mother also was in your situation and I was with her every step of the way. I find it really odd and irresponsible of your GP not to be looking for those signs.. My mother's surgery was in 1996 and up until about 3yrs. ago she did really well.. but we all noticed she was getting very depressed and as of the last year or so really having memory issues, we brought it up to her GP and she began talking and testing her immediately. Also there was a lot of follow up by other doctors,, neuro. ect.. have you outright told your GP about your issues? Also are you being looked after and treated by other specialist? If so, what kind of doctors and are you on any meds for these issues already?
What's wrong with your doc. Its very common when dealing with something that was life threatening to get depression/anxiety. And memory problems can be from depression. Are you on any meds? If you feel you need the depression treated, I would see a psychiatrist for it. They're the ones that know what they're doing. With the memory, I'd tell my doc I wanted some tests done to be sure nothing is physically wrong. He knows what to do, sounds like he needs a shove to do it.
