I'll have none of this. I went in there the other week after taking a knock to the ankle. The fine trained proffesional had diagnosed, writen the prescription and issued sick chit before i had even managed to get my boot off. If only the NHS had doctors who could see through leather, perform X rays with their eyes and write prescriptions at the same time. Waiting lists would drop in days.

Doctors are all the same. Had a young girl at 2 sigs kept complaining about migraines. She kept getting more and more ibuprofen from the quack until the pain got that bad she couldn't get out of bed in the mornings. He then increased her medication to migraleve!! Still Sig 'snooks' was in great pain and got bedded down for a few days. On good friday last year her mate rang the guardroom saying they were taking her to York hospital as she couldn't bear the pain anymore. Within an hour or two of being there she was transferred to a specialist unit in Leeds which was where she was diagnosed with a very large cyst on the brain, which within hours burst and that was it........she was on life support machines until her family arrived, then they turned them off as she was totally brain dead and they could do nothing for her. She was only 19yrs old, how fare is that? What sort of life did she have? She was cheated out of a life and a career by the doctors not giving a fcuk!!

Hats off to her father who was a vicar, who actually had the balls to do her funeral.

Yet another loss to the corps!

Just remember Doc..........Ibuprofen doesn't solve all symptoms!!

Hell man, that's terrible!

Took the NHS *ten* years to diagnose my father with a slow growing brainstem tumour, obviously killed him in the end.

Sprains and other damage to the muscles or ligaments can be treated with RICE therapy. This stands for:

Rest - two days (48 hours) of rest is recommended.
Ice - apply an ice pack to the area for between 10 and 30 minutes. The ice must not directly touch the skin as this may cause a cold burn.
Compression - compression bandages can be used to limit swelling and movement.
Elevation - raise the leg or arm to an elevated but comfortable height to reduce swelling.
After 48 hours, movement of the area should be attempted, and compression stopped. Heat and massage can be used to increase blood flow and physiotherapy may be required to restore full use of the arm or leg.

Pain relief (analgesics) such as paracetamol may be used in conjunction with anti-inflammatory drugs to reduce swelling and provide relief from the pain of sprains and fractures. Anti-inflammatory medicines include cortisone injections. These are local steroid injections which have a high success rate for reducing swelling and relieving the symptoms of muscle and ligament damage.

you can also try a tens machine but ask your g.p. first

TENS (Transcutaneous Electronic Nerve Stimulation) is a device that relieves pain by providing a distracting electronic stimulation to the surface nerves in the affected region. The principle is similar to scratching and itch or beating the skin to distract from irritation.
it is excellant for leg and knee injuries

Lawstudent do the world a favour and Fcuk off. This topic was discussing a problem within a military establishment, something which you have very little knowledge of. RICE treatment is all good and well but remember the first word REST. If you knew anything then you would be aware that in the miltary enviroment it is difficult to rest a minor injury thus they develop into a major one. If every little knock was treated your way the whole fcuking army would be cutting about in wheelchairs with icepacks on every fcuking joint.

The problem is not just in Blandford (unless they posted the Doc in from BFG).

Had a fight with my motorbike and lost so went off to the MRS as you do.

So after being given various creams and pills etc I asked him about the swelling to my wrist. Brufen and tubigrip, 2 weeks light duties.

2 weeks later my wrist is still swollen and 'kin painful so I go back. Brufen and tubigrip, 2 weeks light duties.

This pattern repeated itself for a while until I insisted on an appointment at Wegberg for an Xray.

Well what do you know, surprise surprise one bone broken and one chipped.

They had to rebreak my arm to get it to set properly. That was a load of fun.

Law Student, Not meaning to be rude but what qualifications do you have to dish out this sort of information, as previously stated leave this sort of stuff to the people who know what they are talking about, RICE is a good form of therapy, however it isn't always the most appropriate course of action. Although im tempted to say let us kick ten bales of shite out of you cause a few sprains and then test the theory. Now fcuk off and butt of stuff you know fcuk all about.

Back to the thread in question you are entitled to ask for a second opinion, and are totally within your rights to do this.
