    Nearly hospitalised hurrying to a deal ...

    Soooo funny. I went out to get this deal: hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…669

    I hurried across the road to get the bus and almost took a full blown angina attack. Took my spray, soldiered on and sweated buckets for 4 hours (and counting).

    That would have made a great headline ... 'Man in hospital rushing to Hotukdeals offer'.

    My chest still hurts and I think I will go back to online and home delivered stuff.

    Let this be a lesson to anyone (like me) that hasn't used a brick and mortar shop for years -don't, they are bad for your health.

    lol -ouch.

    I had to share, because you just can't make some things up and it has all the hallmarks of a comedy sketch.

    Yikes, well all I can say is hope you feel better and if Carphone Warehouse gets you worked up then don't go to Lush for the new year sales.

    I understand you but can I just point out that illness like the OP's is not visible

    Yet likely they cannot work although they would love to and as per todays episode (hopefully more to come - touch wood (if OP is a male ) even the basic everyday task of just shopping can be deadly.

    I get it - there are some people in this world who are darn lazy and just live the life on benefits because they can - I hate them too but within those "identified" some maybe don't have a choice.

    glad you got the deal but now let your body recover. Have an early night.

    Unless food is involved, I don't think I would ever run for any deals.

    Philip, I wasn't aiming it the op though.

    Jeepers, Cackles, what the heck were you thinking?
    If you've got the spray it's because the docs think you're high risk - they don't give the spray to just anybody - and it's not only for alleviating chest pain - it's primarily to help keep you alive.

    Sorry if I sound like your doc, Cackles, I know what it's like being told off just about every appointment.

    Hope you're feeling better; don't let this incident put you off, keep getting out whenever you're able - and just take your time - don't allow anyone to rush you.

    P.S. I find going to the supermarket very late at night is brilliant for avoiding crowds and not feeling rushed or that you're getting in anyone's way. God bless

    Not after sweating for 4 hours with health attack, instantly fired as no employer takes risk with a bloke turning up like this.

    I know it, I understand it - was just trying to point out a little fact - that some can be labelled "scroungers" when in fact they have "good reasons".

    Thanks for the concerns

    It wasn't like I was running, just walked a bit faster and only across like one lane of road. My angina only started in February, but I have had about 20 attacks since with around 6 of them being severe.

    I got diagnosed with gastro-peresis in 2014 and multiple sclerosis in 2015 after I changed GP's and specialists in 2012.

    Took a 90 minute test per condition, so 3hrs of testing to take down 16 years of misdiagnosis.

    I had been battling the NHS (Glasgow) since 1999. Gave up my job in IBM that paid £500 a week, that was 2001. In 2002 I was chasing a doctorate in computer science I had to abandon. I also had an exercise routine I did every day until 2004.

    Even though at the start I was making money and studying the doctors put it down to depression, alcohol abuse, mental issues and ... needing a job.

    4 GP's, 3 physiotherapists, 2 gastroenterologists and 3 neurologists all got it wrong.

    Can't wait to see what happens when I turn 40 :P

    And how much is the average GP salary?

    They are *WAY* overpaid. Cut their salaries down to £40k-£65k and that would make a significant dent in the NHS deficit for starters...

    Have to admit I'm getting a bit upset with them - especially the newer younger crop coming through.

    Maybe I was spoiled with great service from the older docs - sadly now retired - but the treatment I'm getting now seems so different from before.
    Won't see me, don't even answer requests for a callback - I know there's not a lot they can do as it's in the hands of the hospitals, but the hospitals told me to call gp when illness worsens - but gp don't want to know
