I phoned 111 service as I was in severe pain and required urgent dental treatment.
The person I spoke to asked me what pain killers I had taken and insisted that I go to A&E and have a blood test done.
The blood test indicated problems with my liver as I had unintentionally overdosed on paracetamol. I was admitted to Hospital and received treatment over 4 days.
I would like to say a big thank you to NHS 24 and in particular the individual who I spoke to that morning as I would have almost certainly now have permanent liver damage if it was not for there professional and caring help.
