I am still "recovering" from this episode, from which my consultants did not think I would survive.

    My message is to get your flu jabs if you are 60 or over (I was 59 when this episode occurred). We underestimate the serious of the "flu" in this country. It is a potential killer even for the relatively young in good health.
    Geoff,

    So sorry to hear that. I wish you a speedy recovery and that your life-changing symptoms don't impact too much on your joie-de-vivre.

    Best wishes,

    Richard,

    Great idea... We badly need some of the 'mongrels', breeding like rabbits, here in the UK, similarly vaccinating! It might improve the quality of the gene pool, and cull the amount of benefits scroungers.

    with you on paracetamol Marco, I feel more comfortable taking specific & targetted tablets for a chronic condition that I suffer and that were proscribed by a very impressive Consultant Endocrinologist and who was quite blunt about some drugs proscribed by GPs being like a blunderbuss - I consider paracetamol in that category.

    There's money to be made from conspiracy theories judging by the number of publications. And all seemingly supported by references, which are unfortunately generated by similarly inclined writers all citing each other to keep the snowball rolling and growing!

    +1 (very much so) on the last bit.

    As for the former, I also completely agree. One must remember what 'GP' stands for, especially the 'G'... They do their best, but really only know the basics, which is why sometimes if you feel (within yourself) that there's something more seriously wrong than Paracetamol can cure, or whatever else you're being prescribed, or that you're just being fobbed off and treated as a 'number', you should insist on getting a second opinion or in seeing a specialist.

    Waiting times in surgeries now are often ridiculous, due to extremely overworked doctors and staff, and so it's inevitable that the pressure they're under is sometimes going to result in patients being given less than thorough examinations, because doctors, like anyone else, are only human. That's why it pays sometimes to be stubbornly persistent, and not afraid of challenging a GP's assessment of your condition.

    Also, don't be afraid to TALK to them, describing your symptoms in as much detail as possible, and make them listen! After all, ultimately, who knows our own bodies better than us? It's often the case that when you *know* within yourself that something's wrong, it is wrong, even if it's not immediately obvious to a GP.

    Most importantly of all, however, is if you think there's something wrong, don't delay and get yourself professionally assessed, ASAP.

    Marco.

    And the trouble is that whilst we can laugh at them, some take them very seriously, with fatal results, such as that German bloke who wanted to kill lots of Jews at a synagogue (and because he couldn't get in, killed two random strangers instead). His head was filled with nonsense about Jews 'controlling the world' and about feminism being another Jewish plot.

    There's an excellent BBC programme about 'fake news' presented by Ian Hislop which looks at how such ideas are spread:

    (Though, ironically, Hislop's own magazine was partly responsible for giving credence to the anti-MMR views of Andrew Wakefield.)

    Yes, and unfortunately in some instances it has the counterproductive effect of diluting the credibility of actual facts, painted as 'conspiracy theories', by those with ulterior motives intent on hiding the truth

    In that respect, it achieves the same result as 'the boy who cried wolf'...
