I’m type 1 diabetic, and had a ear infection coming back from holiday. I had already seen dr 3 days for stronger pain killers, but at 3AM I was in so much pain that I called 999 also my bg was 28mmol by then. The operator paramedic was very very helpful, he kept talking to me until the paramedic got to me.
I could not rate the paramedic that came. They took a look at my antibiotics and said I hadn’t taken enough and it was more then 4 hrs since I had taken some pain killers so have some more. Even though I was only allowed 2 tablets 3 x a day. They did my blood sugar and said to take some more insulin and for me to see my GP in morning.
When I got to see my GP, he admitted me and I was in hospital later that day.
