I'm at the hospital right now and I feel like I'm getting blown off.

I have been really sick for 5 days and it just gets worse and worse. I was in enough pain to go to the ER without insurance for myself and thw doctor just tells me to take f-ing tylenol!! I've been taking it for days! I am crying and I am in so much pain and he says there is nothing he can do. I'm frustrated! I don't know what to do anymore! My chest is on fire,my nose is bleeding from infection and my whole body is shaking and shivering!!

  • is there another hospital anywhere near you? Even if it's an hour away? if so, have someone take you if you cant drive.

  • Ask to speak with the attending physician and always be honest about everything you do and medications you have been taking and how much. Tell them EVERYTHING! You have doctor/patient confidentiality on your side, so no matter what the truth may be it is ONLY between you and that doctor. If this does not work, go to another ER.

  • ask for another Dr, they have to give you asecond opinion if you ask for it no matter what. If they tell you no, ask for the dr/patient leasion, every hospital has one.
