"Chronic cervical spine impingement"

About: Bournemouth and Poole Teaching PCT / Emergency GP out of hours service

(as the patient),

I was experiencing severe heat in head and neck with swollen occipitals, pressure across the forehead mainly centre, swelling around left eye and cheekbone. I also had severe exhaustion from lack of sleep through pain and felt that my eyes lacked coordination.

Only prescription was 3.75mm zimovane and was taking one or two at night.

A worried friend called off duty doctor. After several calls two doctors came.

There was no examination just talking with recommendation to take two paracetamols.
