"Acute back pain"

About: Countess Of Chester Hospital

Anything else?

I was taken to the countess of Chester A&E Department during the early hours of Thursday 7/11/2013, following muscle spasms in my back after injury, which left me stranded at the top of my four storey house, fainting with pain, and being 'rescued' by two wonderful ambulance crews after being given morphine. At the hospital I was examined by several nurses, and a doctor, made as comfortable as possible, given further painkillers and muscle relaxants, had my spine x-rayed, given the all clear, and allowed to stay in the adjacent day ward till I felt confident to leave, and the staff happy with my condition. At present I am at home slowly recovering. I cannot speak highly enough of the care and attention I received from all staff involved. My heartfelt thanks.
