I do not want politics on here but seems it was ignored! Yeah sure I love the awful Labour party, . I am really fed up of coming here and seeing people falling out with each other, and mainly all over politics :/

 

No more to be said, this Dragon is now extinct!

I was warned in November 2014 that one of the few medications I could take, has a lot of side effects. Some of which are tolerable and others are just horrible. Anyway, I spent some of last year rather ill due to some of the side effects. Strangely, if you give me 2 x 25mg, I don't get a certain side effect; but if you give me a 50mg tablet, I get that certain side effect. One I can't tolerate and had a right panic over, knowing I could make myself very ill over it.

 

Anyway, had an ENT appointment today and he asks what conditions I have and what medication I take. He looks up this medication and tells me it causes hearing problems. I now have to look at reducing it.

Sinus pain. Also full of snot. Lovely. (don't have a cold - I've got pain relief which I put my nose)

 

I was the same and I can recommend a product, I've never recommended a product before, but I bought this one and it actually works - Sudafed sinus.

I've tried most things over the years and none of them really give relief but Sudafed does.

Perhaps you need to speak to your GP about this. I know people who have asthma and use sudafed !

Getting unwanted phones calls from someone saying they are phoning in regard to windows on my computer! I am ex-directory as well.

When my brother had one of these, he played him along.

 

"Oh dear", he said, "what do I do" ?

 

He was given a url to type in and then asked what he saw

 

He replied "Micky mouse and Donald Duck", and then all excited "oh I love Donald Duck"

 

They didn't twig though, they said he must have typed in the address wrong and to listen carefully.

 

So he did it again and this time yelled down the phone "oh it's Yogi Bear, I love Yogi Bear even more than Donald Duck"

 

They did catch on this time and put the phone down on him.

We can currently only get same day appointments. I once tried to do that and was told by a non-medically trained receptionist that being chronically dehydrated isn't serious (ok, we'll ignore drinking 4 litres of water on the Saturday, despite it not being that hot) and it can't possibly be the medication I'm on. It says on the leaflet to be seen urgently if you've got issues with drinking. Drinking too much in such a short period (hence my concern) is actually pretty serious.

Vanish does not work any how nor does aerial, I have yet to find anything that works as it claims!

 

What made me swear was the bombings, hijacked plane and arguments in here :(

Places that take forever to make decisions and leave folks hanging...

 

People who go into a blind panic when their GP surgery closes over a long weekend (use Out of Hours if it's urgent folks...)

 

People with next to no spatial awareness when driving - if it's confusing when there's another car on the road, please give your licence back to a local friendly police officer.

And they have the gall to ask why so many people are turning up at A&E

 

Why? Because people clog the appointments with self-limiting viral illnesses / coughs and colds / upset tummy for 24 hours because it's an 'emergency' and if the receptionist dare ask the reason for the appointment so that the GP/Nurse who's triaging the appointments can assign them properly then they're labelled dragons. When, the people we need to see, like the little girl with an infection waits behind someone who's feeling better today but didn't want to cancel their appointment. It's funny really, this reluctance to divulge; seeing as in every other healthcare setting people seem happy to divulge information to the: dental receptionist, Ambulance call handler, A&E reception, OOH clerk etc etc

 

Primary care is changing, rapidly and as much as I'd love to provide appointments for everyone within moments of their call there simply isn't the number of GP's available to do this. We need to triage calls, we need to ensure that people use the services correctly, we need to ensure that people see the appropriate person and not just a GP because it's what they've always done. We're working hard to embed other health professionals in the practice, hurt your back - see a physiotherapist and take over the counter analgesia (all the GP is likely to do is prescribe it and refer you to physio anyway), need a medication review - there's a fully qualified pharmacist; so on and so forth.

 

Some of the A&E reports we get are utterly scandalous wastes of resource and completely inappropriate use of a vital service. That makes me swear - lots...
