I came to my sleep deprived EEG appointment on 21st September in which the eeg nurses were caring, concerned and excellent asked me questions about my seizures etc.
I came out as I was pretty tired I did think the eeg nurses could at least provided me a bed to rest as I was very tired after my examination other than that they was 100% I would always come again should I need another scan.
I came out and sat down to have a rest outside the main shops near reception I experienced sharp chronic like throbbing chest pain so I went to the toilet to see if Id sick anything out nothing apart from phlem
I decided I need to go to A+E when I did the streaming nurse who saw me for my blood pressure was quite rude and condescending when I explained I had it for a couple of days but it went and I didnt think it would return, nurse replies "oh so you just decide to come in anyway because you had your eeg" I said thats not the reason I was unsure wether I needed to come to A+E as it was short lived pain not to mention I have had parasites quite high reading in my recent blood count tests at my GPs they can easily spread across a persons body they have in mine, when I explain to the doctors they dont seem to realise I am suffering from a undectable parisitic manifestation!!! when undergoing certain tests.
So during my blood pressure and temperature check the nurse asked me why am I smiling I was bearing the chronic like throbbing pain in my chest the nurse said "its not funny, we have beds full and almost 20 patients waiting" as if I found anything funny or was laughing, I replied look its the pain Im trying to keep of my mind Im not laughing at anything.
I waited in the green area and a support nurse did my heart trace and I was sent of to NEMS in which there was quite alot of patients I was waiting 45mins or longer as there seemed to be only one doctor, I was shocked and slightly frustrated, I then decided to go home regardless if I feel sleepy or fit on the way back a disgrace I may use another A+E in future.
