On Monday I was taken to A+European by a neighbour presenting with shakes vomiting fever which had been going 24 hours. Was given an anti sickness tablet and told told to go home - I wasn't even given any tests to rule anything out!
Tuesday I went to my GP and fainted who referred me back to A+E for tests, was given a blood test (which I passed out during the test) and again was sent home saying it was a viral infection and given yet more anti sickness. Wednesday I went to GP as still having symptoms and couldn't keep down any food or drink who sent me to surgical assessment unit who did a single blood test and a ultrasound and stated nothing going was wrong just a viral infection. So Thursday I went to a alternative hospital where I was immiediately tell given IV fluids and antibiotics for a suspected appendicitis. within 2 days I was hydrated and beginning to take fluids again. But over 3 visits to the Blackpool Victoria hospital all 3 times they misdiagnosed my condition, am scared for if I ever have to use this hospital again
