"my visit to A&E"
About: William Harvey Hospital William Harvey Hospital Ashford TN24 0LZ
I am a 49 year old male with asthma and COPD. I am also on 15 different medications which means i shake a lot. On Thursday night i was having trouble with something in my throat which was effecting my breathing. I called a doctor and from there the doctor called an ambulance. The doctor and the ambulance service was brilliant. i was put into station 8 and the doctor soon approached me. The doctor saw me shaking and the first thing they said to me was "how long have you been alcohol dependent?" I had blood tests and an x-ray on my throat. After 60 minuets the doctor came back to me and told me they couldn't see anything. The doctor suggested i go back to my GP and get referred to a throat specialist. I was not happy with the doctors service at all. It felt like once the doctor thought i was an alcoholic, they just didn't care.
