"I was asked alot of questions but ended up with good care"
Posted by sailan (as ),
February last year some tablets I was on went wrong, I was in a lot of pain, I waited for a while, then phoned 111.
I was asked a lot of questions, I told them my blood pressure had gone through the roof it was as far as I remember 240 over 120 I gave the person this information but all they kept asking was are you having any chest pain at that time I said no, but they kept asking the same question, by now I was not sure what I was doing.
I remember putting the phone down, then I phoned again, a person answered I told them the same thing, then I said the other person sounded like they had a different nationality and obviously did not understand what I was saying, the person on the call then called me a racist, I put the phone down, to cut a long story short my wife reminded me I had made a previous, appointment with the doctor and that was the next morning.
when this doctor saw how clammy I was they got me straight up to glenfield hospital, put me on a drip over night, to bring my blood pressure down, the next morning, after changing my heart tablets, I got them to discharge me, just before I left, I passed a load of blood (no 2 ) when I went back to my wife I thought this had gone on for 2 days no she said it started on monday night it was Friday before I ended up in hospital, since then the doctors have been good and I am still getting looked after well. I have just been told I have to go on warfarin.
