I have a chronic illness and end up in the ER often for acute exacerbation of tachycardia and dehydration. Anyways, I was sitting in the ER and heard a girl in the hall saying she had chest pain and was breathing loudly. The doctor said he would give her morphine but that it is just a strained muscle. She calmed down and began breathing normally and called a few buddies. Meanwhile, I am severely dehydrated and alarms are going off on my heart monitor and the same doctor has the balls to tell me I am not an emergency since I also have a chronic illness!
WTF? I have the same condition and I would be beyond furious if I had a dr like that!
