Rachel collapsed

After only two weeks back at work Rachel, who went to work OK and happy suddenly collapsed with what seemed like stroke symptoms. She had spoken to my mum earlier who could tell she was not well so raced to work where there was an ambulance waiting already.

Once at hospital, they assumed she had been drinking! Once they got past that they insisted it was all in her mind and she should go home. Rachel would not accept this and could talk again by this time. Finally it was diagnosed as a Basilar Migraine triggered by Post Traumatic Stress.

Sometimes the NHS is just terrible.
