Coming downstairs yesterday morning I missed my step so now I'm quite stiff and have to try and keep my back straight. Took quite a while before I could move and yesterday was a total write-off - first day I've had to take off sick for years. Ambulance eventually called - my wife had already left for work so I managd to call her and she was the one who really made the decision to call them - I as a bit on the white and clammy side. As she said 'You're in shock' Still trying to work out why the ambulance needed to come with lights flashing and sirens sounding! They arrived quickly, two nice young ladies who took my blood pressure a few times, checked my spinal column out, contacted the clinician and generally did a good professional job.
Much better today, but on painkillers and I should be easy to identify at Salute - I'll be the guy hobbling around slowly!
