"Head Injury Saturday 22 August 2015"

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

i came in and not remembering my journey in the ambulance after drinking 4 large glasses of red wine without eating (something I never normally do) and was seen by the doctor who did a head scan and diagnosed a bad haematoma as I fell off the pub stool and hit my head on the slate floor; please can you get this message to the doctor and thank them for their concern and advising me to see my GP as my main injury to my head highted another problem, my high BP - I was not happy to stay at the Hospital as distressed and dehydrated but have since been to my GP and have bought a home bp monitor and having another blood test and ECG at my local Wallingford Hopsital, also prescribed medication but concerned about the side effects but the doctor is a first class doctor.
