My husband had sharp pains in his chest and difficulty breathing during the night so I called 111 for advice. They sent a paramedic round straight away – he was so good.
He came very quickly and gave my husband a thorough check, doing blood tests for diabetes, blood pressure and an ECG to check his heart. He was very calm and patient, told us he was not having a heart attack and everything was fine. All the tests were normal. He gave my husband painkillers and said he should get a good night’s sleep.
I just wanted to say hay how reassuring the young man was.
