"Hurt foot"

About: Tewkesbury Hospital

I was rather disappointed with the MIU. I've been there 3 times with a foot injury that causes me excruciating pain and all times they have said its a sprained ankle or tendon. Not once was I offered an X-ray despite my pain. I wasn't offered crutches or had my foot supported by a bandage either. Just feel like my foot has been disregarded despite the pain. All 3 times I was told to take pain killers even though I informed the staff I can't as my body rejects them. Debating going to chelt a&e as over a week on I am still in pain. Very disappointed .
