I went to my GP Back in February this year before going to walk in clinics in January for ear aches and nose bleed with joint pains all over either general feverish symptoms that if be
Been having since November. I also complained on my second visit to the GP. A week later of sharp prodding pains in the sole of my feet.
I needed to go GP for a sick note. She told me to do a blood test and said take ibuprofen twice a day. Not having ever done blood test in all 26 years of my life and hating sight of blood I delayed it as ling as I could. In total I was on ibuprofen for 2 weeks straight. she hadn't checked to see if my ear infection (euchastraial dysfunction) had cleared after tellung her f these (walk in clinic and extended hours service -each once) or checked my blood pressure or heart rate.
Following week I went back for another were off as I was literally limping and in so much pain, she simply said when I asked for a sick note to see my occupational therapist and that she cannot be giving me sick notes after reluctantly writing one wen I told her what I do for an occupation. She also Sdid she can't comment much because I still hadn't done the blood test to test for inflammation.
My mum came with n I did blood test....got a call on a Thursday saying I should make an appointment to see GP of my blood result but it wasn't that serious or else they'd tell me to come immediately. I made it for the earliest which was the Monday with another GP. I ENDED UP GOING into hospital on the Sunday.
When I was discharged in April I called GP. She did a home visit and I had to ask her to check my temperature.
She also lied....as she said she was not informed of me being hospitalised or in a coma on the phone from either hospital. She after said she got one letter from second hospital were I was transferred to royal London but had no diagnosis -LIE! I asked for a copy of that which she gave and it was whilst Iwas still admitted in hospital ICU and it said ANCA positive vasculitis!
But she was Bbeing very sympathetic and too nice....did she know she should've explored all those symptoms properly when I told her originally? She explained that she was not hot on vasculitis and That the blood test would've only said there was an inflammation but not where.
Just feel like she should've enquired how her patient was doing in hospital and after getting the blood.result back and I didn't turn up for my appointment wouldn't you enquiry? Plus my family said that Newham general Dr in ICU had called my GP for wanting more details of my history....is she telling the truth...because it doesn't add.
The first hospital I went into...Newham general I contracted MRSA from and they misdiagnosed me with tuberculosis and pneumonia. I had died and had to be resuscitated literally 3 times. My family and friends said staff were horrible too. I just about remember that they wouldn't come when i called for them and had to wait hour or more to be cleaned (wasn't able to use toilet myself)
My family telling me to sue. But I feel like my GP knows me now... and apparently it's really hard to sue a hospital for negligence in contracting MRSA....and I don't remember much. I went into a coma couple days in.
