Good point about people who have a condition sometimes being more of an expert than GPs. I think it can work the other way too though - I've seen the symptoms of silent reflux dismissed as 'normal' zillions of times on Mumsnet (but then they'd probably have been dismissed as normal by GPs too!).

I think health visitors are partly there to protect GPs from too many mothers coming in with the 'is this normal?' type queries which can be easily answered, but it's not always easy to speak to or see a health visitor as soon as you want to.

Silent reflux came up on a thread I was looking at just the other day as a possible reason for something that a parent was seeing - the picture does vary and you can get some very good advice, but you have to be a bit on the qui vive either way I suppose.
