I don't know if this has happened to any of you? I had a rough night with chest pain, neck pain, tinnitus, headache, shoulder and arm pain, sweats and vertigo! Ended up going to A&E. The nurse I saw first was so rude and told me that I was wasting their time coz I was not sick! She said she was sending me home or I had to go to a walk in centre. She was asking me what Lupus was and Empty Sella syndrome was. She said from looking at me my pain score must be a 4 over 7 without asking me! Told me that did not give me the right to just come to A&E for treatment. i explained to her how I was feeling and apologised for coming there. She shouted at me saying I had to go! I felt so embarrassed and so stupid and because of the pain could not say anything more but just say "I am so sorry, it's ok I can go". The doctor overhead and came in. He looked at my papers and told me to take a sit whilst he finished with another patient. Later he saw me and I apologised again! Lol I think I had lost the plot! He said he was the one who had to apologise. Anyway ended up getting treatment for not being sick! My right side is inflamed and my inner ear and neck which is why I was having that pain and not forgetting I also have Fibro! Thanks to such a lovely doctor. Got treatment at last!!
