I have been detained under section 44 with what I believe is ehlers-danlos-syndrome and wrongly being interpted as mental illness- they want to do tests but the problem is there is no one in Scotland really ualified to diagnose it . I am already physically much worse which in turn is being interpted as yet more mental issues and can barely type or talk to communicate as well. From http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/ehlers-danlos-syndrome/Pages/Introduction.aspx https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/260562/UK_Strategy_for_Rare_ Can any one tell me what criteria allows drs with no previous -or very little to fairly assess a rare disease with high rate of misdiagnosis instead of allowing them to get referred or go pvt ? ( esp in the highlands were there is 0) If its possible for someone detained under section 44 to seek help privately for assessment if the resources req to rule out a condition are unvailable in scotland esp if there is proof / reason to doubt a mental illness ? thanks mike
