"Poor advice from walk in centre"

About: St Mary's Hospital (Portsmouth)

Anything else?

I went to the walk in centre with a shoulder injury. I was told that it was muscular and to keep using my arm. The numbness in my hand was dismissed as pins and needles because my arm had been still. I felt dismissed and that I was not listened to. I have seen a doctor since then and been told I have tendon damage, possible nerve entrapment and I need to rest my arm. The advice given at the walk in centre has set me back several days and caused me a lot of pain. Not ver happy.
