    I’m concerned now because I have all 5 symptoms and after recently starting to explain them to my GP he stopped me mid sentence to state that it was a 10 minute appointment and that I had time to talk about 1 symptom and 1 symptom only!

    I now have an MRI scan tomorrow as the back pain he has immediately linked to my prior spinal fusion.
