"no help from paramedics"

About: North East Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust / Emergency ambulance

(as the patient),

I came home from walking my dog on Monday and had sudden excruciating pain shoot thru pelvis. checked NHSCHOICES Site for advice as who to contact and it said seek urgent medical assistance. I called 999. paramedics did sats and did not accept pain was pelvic instead checking my abdomen and saying it's your lower quadrant. so what is the problem? they called my gp who did not take me seriously either. all this is based on dismissal by previous gp. pelvis remains intolerably painful I can't function.
