After being told I needed an urgent brain scan at the start of April because of a pain in the side of my head, I went and had a ct scan 2 weeks ago. They couldn't canulate me and without any explanation I got an appointment for a MRI scan on Friday evening. They did did a ct scan without contrast 2 weeks ago so I'm hoping that the MRI is because the scan didn't work and not because they found something, when I rang the hospital no one could tell me.
I now have 2 weeks to wait for the scan to be read, which is practically July. 3 months for an urgent brain scan. Personally I think it's a problem with my neck but the osteopath won't see me until I've had the results of the scan and the gp won't prescribe painkillers or physio for the same reason.
I am usually pretty positive but the constant headache is starting to get me down and to start with paracetamol took the edge off it, it's now not making much difference.
I'm more frustrated because the nurse told me that the hospital where I was supposed to gave the ct scan have a reputation for failing to canulate patients and so scans have to be done at the hospital I had my MRI. What a waste of resources!
Sorry, thought I'd have a bit of a rant!
