Injury... GP's find it hard to find a diagnoses

I had an injury, some GP's find it hard to find a diagnoses so they tell me there is nothing wrong, i still feel the pain, there is something wrong, i still have injury. Is there anything wrong with going to a GP and telling them i have an injury other GP's have found hard to diagnose, i need assistance to get a diagnoses.

I wish to inform you that you may have compensation for negligence by GP. In this regard if GP is unable to diagnose then GP can inform that GP is unable to find cause of pain but GP cannot say that you are normal because by saying you are normal GP intends to say that there is no cause of pain which is incorrect. You will require evidence to be shown that GP has said that you are normal.

Default Re: Injury... GP's find it hard to find a diagnoses

A general practitioner is just that which is why there are so many specialties in medicine. They treat many, many conditions which present in their practice and know when to refer to a specialist. There is a specialty called "diagnostician." My ex and I both on occasion saw one when there was a difficult to diagnose problem.

If it's possible damaged nerves, neurologist. Spine problems causing it, orthopedic physician or chiropractor. Glandular? Endocrinologist. There are internists, too. There are pain clinics who treat pain from a variety of sources.

The human body is a complicated machine and physicians are not God who designed it. The GP may have a clue, and no more than that. So I would ask what the GP suspects and for referral to a specialist.
