Emergency Unit

Surrey & East Sussex Emergency Unit

This is one of the entrances to the accident and emergency unit at the East Surrey Hospital.  I spent a couple of hours here this morning after awaking with a severe pain in my neck, back and arm which I couldn’t relieve. I left the hospital happier (having been given a morphine-based painkiller) but frustrated. Thinking about my frustration I think it stems from the fact that I have been an avid fan of the TV series House, but the doctor in the hospital was no Dr Gregory House. An X-Ray showed that nothing was broken (I would have been surprised if I had broken my back in my sleep!). He then told me that I didn’t have frozen shoulder, on the basis that I have too much movement in my shoulder. Yeah, but he should have seen me before the morphine! Basically I have been put on a course of pain killers and told that 95 out of 100 people with my condition cure themselves in a week or two. Can’t wait.  He said if I am still in pain in a week’s time I should embark on a course of physiotherapy: “it can help in these cases”.  Right! I phoned the physiotheraphist this afternoon…

One word. Osteopath. I have been where you are and they helped.

Normally I am dead agin crap alternative therapy, but osteos are really just SuperMassagers, and it does work.
