"Made to feel like I shouldn't of been there"

About: Gloucestershire Royal Hospital / Accident and emergency

I was taken by ambulance on Sunday as I had suffered a kind of seizure at home bought on by pain in my arm and neck, I was given morphine and oxegan by the paramedic, they advised me to go the Gloucester royal for some blood tests and overnight pain management so I didn't have another attack, when I arrived no one came to me until I said I had a pain in my chest, then I was taken from the bed and put on to a chair, I waited for six hours Then I was eventually seen by a doctor who couldn't even make eye contact with me and kept looking away, then to be told I was fine and I'd had an anxiety attack. I have since been told by my GP that my trapped nerve is causing me pain which brings on high blood pressure and dizziness, I found the doctor at Gloucester Royal very arrangont towards me, they made me feel like I shouldn't of been there!
