    Default Undiagnosed and Discharged from Hospital

    My question involves medical malpractice in the state of: PA

    i was rushed to the ER from work with having chest pains and I could not move my left arm. They did all the normal heart tests that came back negative. They admitted me in for observation. While in the hospital I had several bad seizuresresulting in lower back pain and numbness going down into my right foot. this was the same type of pain I had before back surgery in 2007. I had 5 different rooms in 4 different units. When they switched me from the one unit to another I found out they may have been giving me medicine that I thought was for my pain, but was only for my haed aches. Is this normal to switch meds between units? I was in for about a week, having seizures almost everynight, they called them "tremors" were due to stress. they could never truly figure out why I had the "tremors", will I ever have them again, or What is causing by back pain and right side weakness.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Agree, we can't answer your medical questions. Did you talk to your personal physician - you might want to ask him your questions. It's not always possible to make a dx.

    I've had this pain in my neck ever since I went to Illinois and ... oh ... wait a minute.

    It's been kicked out of office.

    Never mind.

    I would just go to another doctor and tell them about it. I don't believe a doctor is required to diagnose you, and would probably have to order additional tests if necessary. I would just go somewhere else and tell them what was going on, and if needed, they can request the records from the hospital.


    LOL @ the quote below..
