I visited the a&e department this morning with a suspected spider bite reaction! , as advised by my gp if my symptoms worsened , which they did. Upon arrival had to wait 1 hour to even be seen on triage , the triage nurse was lovely and seemed very concerned , however I was not offered any pain relief and had to sit for a further 2 and half hours before being seen by a nurse practicioner only to be told without any proper examination/tests and still no pain relief, yes it's a spider bite take painkillers which I had already stated are not taken any affect. Despite the fact I could not feel two of my fingers I was sent home after 3 and half hours no better of! And in floods of tears , I am still in absolute agony! The nurse practitioner was also very rude and patronising and sed my painkillers are working! ( they are not ) it is in my head. I'm assuming he just put it down to my other medical condition fms This is not the first time I have had a bad experience with this a&he department Waste of time and am utterly disgusted!
