I went to the Ipswich Hospital ER on advice from my GP. I have been sick for 18 months with an unknown chronic disorder which doctors are researching as I believe it is very rare. Within the last 2 weeks I have had a turn and have, I believe, been getting sicker. So after visiting my GP for shortness of breath, pain when breathing, bad cough and couple other symptoms the GP said if I am no better go to the ER. I went up to the ER, after waiting a couple of hours to see a doctor we finally saw one and when explaining to the doctor what was going on and how I was feeling, the doctor looked at me and said to me that nothing was wrong and I should go see Mental Health as they will be the only ones able to help me. It appeared to me that the doctor refused to listen to myself or my mother when trying to explain what I have and what has been going on. We ended up walking out as I know I have a serious illness and all your doctor could say was go see Mental Health. All I wanted was to get some relief with my shortness of breath and coughing.
