Prior to your consultation, you will be asked to fill out our detailed medical questionnaires. You will be asked about:
• how long you have had the problem,
• how it may have started,
• what factors may be stopping it getting better,
• what aggravates and what relieves the symptoms,
• the impact on your daily activities, including your domestic, social and work life.
You will also be asked about your:
• past history of similar problems,
• past injuries,
• other illnesses,
• hospitalisations or operations,
• any illnesses that have affected your blood relatives,
• the impact of your lifestyle on your health, for example your diet and exercise.
During your initial consultation, we will follow up on any aspects of your medical history that require more detail.
