I was at an obstacle race called Nuts Challenge and hurt my shoulder. After sealing medical advice at the event they told me to go to a&e and get my shoulder X-rayed as I may have done more than just muscular damage..may have dislocated it slightly. The triage nurse didn't do much seemed pointless seeing them for the whole 2mins I did. Then when I finally saw a doctor they made me feel like a total idiot for coming to a&e on the advice I was given by fully trained medics at an event where serious injuries can happen! As much as I can appreciate it may be muscular injury I am not impressed to be made to feel like an idiot when follows up on medical advice I was given at an organised event.
