Disgusting Medical Care


I am seriously fed up with and disgusted by the treatment I receive from the medical profession! Even my GP, who is usually in my good books, has appalled me. Since 2:45pm yesterday afternoon my jaw has been clamped shut and deviated. I cannot eat, drink or even take my medication and have not done so since that time yesterday! We asked my GP to do a home visit, and after feeling my pulse and stomach he left. He claimed that he was sure my jaw would go back eventually and that he did not know what to suggest.

I know that eventually my jaw will go back. Eventually being the key word. We do not know how long it will take for my jaw to EVENTUALLY go back. I have not had a drink of water or taken any medication in almost 27 hours now. How long do they expect me to go without fluid or medication? Surly the logical thing to do is to admit me into hospital put an IV and administer me fluids, my meds and muscle relaxants/pain relief???

I do not understand why I should have to accept and put up with such disgusting treatment! I am disgusted and highly irritated!



I'm 27 years old, a mother, author, partner and spoonie. I suffer from Dystonia,POTS, EDS, Osteoarthritis and Lyme Disease. I have set up my blog to help spread awareness and bring light to this condition. This blog will be full of all my experiences that happen during my dystonia and chronic illness journey, from natterings, musings, moans, laughs, highs and lows. :-) It will be a little bit of everything

  2. Functional Movement Disorder Sufferer – I suffer from functional movement disorder, Dystonia, fibromyalgia, rheumatism, osteoarthritis, as well as back problems from DDD. I do a blog about living with them, when I'm well enough and feel I have something more to say than I've already posted over the years. This website is done from a patients point of view, for my FMD. When I was diagnosed years ago, I searched the web and there was only information on the one site my consultant had told me about. So I set one up wrote in an easier to understand way, and a step by step progress to a point. I hope they help in some small way.

    There seems to be such little compassion for neurological disorders, is it that the Drs are scared of us??? I am at a loss, and I despair at the shoddy treatment we receive. A Dr saying they don’t know the answer, or what to do, does not help us as patients! So sorry that you went through this hun, as you know I posted on Facebook at the time but it still infuriates me now! 🙁
