"nobody listened to what I was saying"
Posted by teacup (as ),
Had fall last year was in extreme pain, went to A@E Xhouse. Saw doctor who did nothing, in 2 minutes. Spent next 6 weeks mostly resting, the walking with stick. Feb got extreme pain in leg went to GP who sent me for xray. Difficulty walking and pain continued, waited for appointment for MSK clinic. Phoned after 12 weeks, still no appointment. Got tests at GP and was referred to Ortho\Trauma clinic, eventually got appointment. Got examined and pressed very hard on my spine. Thought I was seeing a Doctor but when asked he was a physio who assessed patients to see if they needed operation. No scan, no doctor. Why was a physio assessing patients and not a Doctor, wonder if other people are aware. Got extreme symptoms after consultation, had to see GP. Was diagnosed with mechanical back pain, nobody listened to what I was saying. Leg collapsed yesterday, back to same as Feb.
