"Ultrasound lady has hurt me badly !"

I've an ultrasound in this hospital (X-Ray Department ) to be precise , it was the worse experience I had encouraged in my whole life and I'm still not accepting the way the women(ultrasonographer?) has hurt me and pressed into death on my tummy! For a moment I thought I was being tortured by this ultrasonographer as she sounded angry and wanted to have it done quickly as I was one of the last patience. I for may times advised her to now hurt me that way but she completely ignored my suffering and kept pressing the machine into my tummy that I could hear the sound and waves from it going through my mouth and body, this was absolutely terrifying and I believe this person hasn't knowledge of what she was doing and the amount of pressure she was applying was not correct as I have done this procedure previously and I have never been tortured like that with a machine that is harmless in the right well-qualified professional ,right? I told her for the sake of God to not pressure anymore but her anger haven't permitted any mercy to my pain and hurt. I've been in pain since than and it was so sharp and dull that I had to call the emergency to talk with a doctor about my problem instead of being referred to a doctor and getting a support with regard to this situation the person I spoke on the phone simply told me to take paracetamol or other over the counter analgesic, I have been trying to contact the Hospital to complain and they keep giving me numbers that doesn't work and now 1 week has passed and the pain is deteriorating my daily basis. I'm not going to give up and I am not going to suffer so I am writing a complaint letter and I want to know what has happened to me as I can bend and move ,can't sleep on my right side after this nightmare scan and it is getting worse. If you are there and can help me please reply to this post .I am writing to the health Ombudsman within 2 weeks because I need to wait this Hospital and the company that deals with complaints to back to me with a position and investigation with regard to my situation,if I don't receive any response so I will take things to the Ombudsman because I can cope with this torture this ultrasound has caused me.
