"Nasty fall"

About: Northern General Hospital

I had a bad fall last sunday 13/4/2014 which I fell on my right leg, I thought the pain was easing, but come Saturday I couldn't sit without being in so much discomfort , so I took myself of to the A&E , thinking I would be waiting for ages, I got there at 9.30am I was booked in by the receptionist who was very helpful, and polite, than I was seen by the nurse , who gave me a check up on my leg and hip, after checking me over, I was told that I had trapped a nerve in my leg , and to take Co-codamol, which would ease the pain , I was out off the A&E and back home for 10.30am. Record time , I cannot thank the staff enough. Thankyou to all Shelly
