In the unusual event that you suffer an increase in symptoms, please call us. When you do, please be sure you explain to the staff that you are having an increase in symptoms. The staff will get out your medical notes and ensure that your therapist (or another senior clinician) contacts you. After we discuss the case with you, we will be able to give you guidelines as to what would be appropriate to reduce your symptoms, whether you need to come into us, or if you should contact or follow-up with your physician.
A common cause of an increase in symptoms can be being over-enthusiastic after you’ve been seen! So if you decided to mow the lawn or paint your bedroom the evening after your treatment, do let us know, it’s probably rather relevant!
Either way, it’s generally best to call us prior to calling your GP, because if a change in symptoms has occurred, we have access to your treatment records and the way your case is progressing, so we usually have the best information to help you and/or to provide up-to-date information to the GP.
