Seen several GPs, basically their advice boils down to "Sorry, can't find anything, but Gaviscon is quite good for indigestion and that sort of thing." They probably all assume I'm just making it up anyway: because I have suffered from depression on and off in the past, all my physical illnesses must be "all in the mind". And besides, every GP knows that when women say they're in pain they're just trying to get attention. :-(

The boss suggested seeing Occupational Health, but I really don't see that they'd be any more use than a GP. They would probably make me go for "counselling" (like the University counselling service, where a nice mumsy lady in floral prints says "there there, love, it'll all come out in the wash" and "I suggest having a nice walk in the fresh air"), and frankly I'd rather stick forks in my eyes.

Sorry, I don't mean to be totally negative about all your suggestions! :-/
