It actually is quite hard to call an ambulance. First you have to admit its that serious!

Or worse yet, to convince your child / sibling / spouse that he / she needs an ambulance.
This can be almost as dreadful as the actual need itself.

I understand perfectly Peta smiley - sadface There is a certain stubboness in us that makes us convinced that we don't really warrant the attention of a hospital/doctor...at the same time instinct tells us when something is wrong,especially where a child is involved. I am glad to hear that all turned out well and will keep your trust on the other matter to myself.

The problem is that modern people are in control of so many things. We KNOW a lot of things, driving a car, changing a plug, cooking, reading, understanding basic physics. We really are in control today.
But when ilness strike, we are no longer in control. Admitting that takes courrage!

Thanks Shazz. It's a difficult call to make. But it's very important to get it right.

really glad that you were able to persevere to get suitable medical attention.
ignorring and not taking patients seriously is surely medical malpratice?
getting your GP to take attention is also incredibly difficult when you have chronic ill health, I have also written a short article on this at http://www.upscm.fsnet.co.uk/intersti.htm it's the second article called TOP TIPS FOR HANDLING YOUR GP.
I'll post it here on h2g2 if I can work out how !
