March 2013

Oops, March was starting off with another scare, I was rushed in again with what can only be

described as “Stroke Pain” I was getting periodic spasms which started in my neck and flushed

throughout my body, needless to say paramedics were called, I was assessed and I was again 

rushed in to Stepping Hill, my blood pressure was checked and all was fine and there were no

signs other than the spasms so I was prescribed diclofenac by the young doctor, great another 

Friday night / early Saturday morning witnessing the labours of the A&E ward at Stepping Hill.

Those medics and staff deserve a medal with what they have to put up with.  Some people should

be really ashamed getting themselves into that state via alcohol or drugs.

Wait, what has the doctor given me?  Upon reading the bumph that accompanies the tablets, it

is paramount that Stroke patients should not have diclofenac, I guess the frightening aspect that

taking them could actually do more harm subconsciously stopped the pain eventually.
