"stomach pain and head pains"

About: Southend Hospital

Anything else?

I visited southend hospital about 2 months ago because I was being sick pretty badly I was sitting in a+e for about and hour but that's not my concern. my concern was the fact I said to one of the nurses also I have been suffering with a sharp pain in my head to my surprise they replied but that's not what your here for. I was shocked you don't have someone complain of sharp head pains and ignore it I know you are all very busy but to have a few tests would have been nice and reassuring im still getting them today but if I go back will I just get turned away like last time ?
