Couldn't breath and struggled to speak with Dr. They walked away saying they would come back later. Did blood tests and said nothing wrong with me its all psychological - panic attack - without let up for more than ten days. As I lived alone they admitted me. Ward Dr said not doing tests as there is nothing wrong with me. When I said I was going home he said he would get the respiratory dept to look at me - but I would have to wait until the following week. He obviously thought I would get sick of staying in hospital and go home. When the respiratory Dr saw me they diagnosed a few things all happening at once. Gave me medication, and I have to have lung and bone scans. They laughed when I told him they had diagnosed a panick attack and said they should have done a scan and more tests. Apart from this Dr I had disgusting treatment. The nurse on A&E couldn't even smile let alone speak with me. When I asked them a question they just grunted. I am thoroughly disgusted
