I am sitting in my hospital bed still in agony from on going back pain still have not received ant pain killers for this. I am a healthy fit extremely happy person , love my job family live life to the full. Last few months I've felt not quite right several unsuccessful attempts to get a drs app later sitting at my desk in work after a week of suffering extreme tiredness. Bearing in mind. I do not believe in naps ! unable to control my temperature I sudden felt very unwell. I left work went straight to my docs usual blood tests my red n white cells were all over the place. She diagnosed pernicious anemia. Prescribed vit b12 injections said I would feel better. My symptoms became worse , palpitations sleeping anywhere even when driving feeling extremely poorly unable to function feeling so cold and a Huge weight loss. Two weeks ago I woke with awful leg pain n then my back started. Another trip to the docs this time a water sample high levels of protein n blood treated me for kidney infection still with worsening pain still unable to function nausea a stone n ten pound weight loss my dr very unhappy sent me to ane. I arrived clearly unwell curled up in a ball asleep to be told by triage I faced a terrible wait. 9 patients before me obviously no idea wat would come through doors on stretcher. She advised me to go home n to corm back at 8 were I would be taken straight through to mab. I became very unwell here vomiting quite violently. I have nothing but praise for the guys here. I was finally admitted at three that afternoon bearing in mind I have no temp and my obs r all fine. No one in this ward is listening to me. I feel awful extremely unwell and I am so frustrated with the lack of respect for myself and my dignity it has even been suggested I have aids. One dr from the chest department has shown me any respect my ct has shown a shadow on my lung he has assured me a scan in three months to check this is fine. More importantly he thinks I have bronchi ecstasies which would be fitting with an immune deficient disease which my symptoms would point to. I am sitting in my hospital bed waiting to have a camera down my throat , which will be very painful as my mouth is so dry I am also sitting here in pain , frustrated upset feeling bloody awful , I thought hospitals were here to show you care? Ward 11 spotless a lovely ward and I'm sure if u r a gastro patient the care would be lovely ! I'm just sorry that a hospital I have always been so full of praise for. My dad is a patient here and has been for 30 years .. Well I am sitting here feeling so ill so confused and hurt by the lack of respect oe dignity I have been shown. I feel the staff think I am a fraud
