I think you need some immediate medical attention to set your mind at rest. Drastic way to get it is to turn up at A&E but as effective to get help tomorrow is to ring your surgery and say you need a second opinion. Tell them you are seriously worried and dont be fobbed off. Say you want an appointment the same day. Wish you luck and keep us posted.xx


Sorry to hear you are in so much pain. This is a lung disease site so I doubt we will be able to help you. Also no one expect a trained professional can give medical advice.

I think Pergola's advice is goo. Take care.

Sounds like you banged your head as well you need to be more assertive to get it looked at. Ear infection will affect jaw and throat but worth a deeper look.

Be Well


Hello Luke1961, Think you need a same day appointment as suggested, don't think from what you are saying these symptoms should be overlooked or put down to the back injury. You need some help till you go to the hospital even if only a bit of support from your GP. We can't answer the medical questions on the site. Try pain concern site some one on there may have encountered a similar experience as there are a few with problems following back injuries. Sadly the wait for routine none emergency hospital appointments can be a while depending on which department you have to go to, good luck and let us know how you get on. Take care and every best wish
