    Same, I say see your GP first. A&E is only really for things like broken bones or really serious injury

    plus the fact that youre well enough to post shows youre not unwell enough to bypass the gp.

    i have a heart problem.. but i know that if i carry on like you are(dizzy etc) i will pass out lol ! so to be honest i usually got to the hospital, because i know thats where my doctor will send me anyways.. but usually i wouldn't be able to sit up let alone type on here when my heart is bad... so yeah gp would be fine i would say :) X

    Considering how long you will have to wait in A&E, You might aswell just wait to see your doctor.
    Hope your ok.

    I would see the GP, they will assess whether you need to be treated in the hospital.

    I would go to your GP
    Unless the pain in your chest gets worse, you are finding breathing hard etc. Then go to A+E

    I work in ED, I would say try wait for GP but if you did go ED you wouldnt be turned away or considered a non ED patient, chest pain never is... up to you hun, depending what area you r in it might be quicker to wait for GP. xxx

    I avoid A&E's for myself but unfortunately they are neccesary for Tegan every now and again.. Although we can't just take her to the local hospital, we have to make a 45 min drive to the Childrens hospital. One of her conditions has a 3 hour time limit (between shunt failure and death) so we don't mess about with GP's :lol:

    Glad you went to the Gp though hun! Do you have medication or anything? x
