I was asleep last night, which is unusual for me, and was woken up with terrible chest pain, so severe I could not move my neck or my arm or take deep breaths. I managed to call 999 and the paramedics who came were excellent. Ben, Doug and Rob were very thorough and vey kind.
They did an ECG and other tests and, given my medical history, asked if I wanted to go into hospital, but who does? I preferred to stay at home, not least because I had a hospital appointment the next day anyway.
I had a high temperature, a urinary tract and chest infections for which they gave me medication. The paramedics said they would phone my doctor in the morning and let them know how I was.
All three paramedics were very, very kind and represented the service very well.
