I would like everyone to know you can be denied all health care, even with full, paid for by you, medical insurance coverage. I fell down 3 times in early 2005, unable to walk, speak and tasting metal.I was then drugged without consent with(Keterolac tromethamine inj.)( my insurance comp. sent me the paperwork about that)and told on the 3RD ER trip to St. Francis Hospital (2 times by ambulance) that I could not be admitted because they would have to run more test! I was questioned about 'What stress I was under' I said none, something was wrong with my back. I fell down because it felt like something ripped in my back, then it felt like lightening travelling down my spine. My legs lost all feeling and I collapsed unable to breath . I then passed out.# times I tried to get help. By the 3rd time I could only taste metal in my mouth and I could not even remember what day it was.This diagnosis of stress did not stop the er from giving me an injection or giving me 500 mg. pills of methocarbonal and nabumetone (2 times a day 1000 mg each)) to take at the hospital & a prescription for at home.I tried to get help from other dr's Dr, Nardi/ I had incontinence. Dr. Barrick/ my test results-C5-C6 broad based posterior bulge with spondylotic ridging. Disc osteophyte complex extends into the right lateral epidural recess and neural foraman recommend clinical correlation for c6 nerve root impingement. His advice ' I've seen worse you are only depressed.' Sent to a neurologist / his test results- 24 hour brain eeg- I LOC (loss of consciousness- 1, 346 spikes/137 rythmic spikes/7 spike bursts- this was 3 MONTHS LATER I a was still trying to get medical help- his diagnosis I was depressed I needed medication for it. So I would not be overly creative. I tried another area hospital this time they said I also had 2 disc out in my neck. They said see the Dr. you have been seeing then they gave me 2 pain killers percoset/ and another called?I have the paperwork .
Since sept. 2005 I have been treating myself. I have only seen one walk in clinic Dr. for a cold so bad I needed an antibiotic. I will continue to treat myself. I have to here .
I would like anyone who will read this to know in Dutchess County N.Y you can be denied all health care even with full medical insurance. I fell down 3 times in early 2005 unable to walk or speak, tasting metal. I was drugged with out consent (Keterolac tromethamine inj.) and told on the 3rd e.r trip to St. Francis Hospital, (2 times by ambulance) that I could not be admitted they would have to run more test.That did not stop them from giving me 500 mg. pills of methocarbonal and nabumetone for my STRESS I was under. I tried to get help from my primary doctor, Dr, Nardi's office. Their diagnosis for my spine incontinence. I saw 2 Dr.'s for my back and spine here are the results they told me to learn to live with I was only depressed/ C5-C6 broad based posteriordisc bulge with spondylotic ridging. Disc osteophyte complex extends into the right lateral epidural recess and neural foraman recommend clinical correlation for C6 nerve root impingement.They told me I was only depressed so they could not treat anything.So Dr. Barrick said I had to see a neurologist Dr. Gerber. He ran test here are the results from my EEG (24 hour test) 1, 346 spikes/137 rythmic spikes/7 spike bursts 1 loc (loss of consciousness) that was in 24hours. They ran that test 3 months after I went to the E.R trying to get help. 3 months later I was still passing out. Their diagnosis- that is all normal they wrote that right on my eeg paper. They told me that's normal and to go ahead and drive and do all normal activities. I have to guess now that they wanted me to drive, crash my car or die to cover up their mis diagnosis. I learned to treat myself since then. I still believed them at that point so I went to therapy I tried to tell the therapist about my medical problems and harassment. Her advice when I told her I had been harassed in state parks/ (which by the way started all this) You are foolish and stupid to use State Parks (N.Y) they are not safe here. I have not seen any of these Dr.'s since August 2005 I have treated myself since then.Once I had acold so bad I used a walk in clinic. They were kind and gave me antibiotics. I was thank ful. I have all the paperwork to prove what I am saying but no one will look at it or speak to me. That is the REAL N.Y the one no one wants to see or talk about or do anything about. And they can make up all the lies they want but their OWN paperwork they tried to hide tells the real story. Thanks for letting me tell this maybe I can help someone else from having to go through the same thing here in Dutchess County N.Y.
