It seems that your first GP was not experienced in neuropathies. A GP should not be expected to arrive at the definitive diagnosis, but does need to know when to refer the case to a neurologist.

Was your first GP doing the knee reflex test? What was the result? When mine discovered I had no knee reflex response, he was on the phone to the neurologist right away.
