just been to A and E will upper and lower back pains, when I was seen the doctor came into the cubicle, where I was leaning against the bed trying to support my back, and asked me what was wrong. I then started to explain my concern to which the doctor then asked me if I had been to see my GP I said no as I though it was more important to see a doctor at A and E where they have more equipment to examine me, they then asked me if I had taken any pain killers to which I said no because of all the other tablets I take for my heart condition. I was then asked what I wanted them to do to which I replied help my pain, I was the asked what I wanted them to do. I took offence to this type of attitude as I was in considerable pain so Iam doing as I am told and going to see my GP who will the get an appointment to see a back specialist which im sure will be in two or three months time during which I will carry on taking pain killers with all my heart tablets and hope there will be no reaction so I will be around to see the specialist.
