I wonder if anyone has had a similar experience to what I had last week?
Basically I had a fall from approx. 3ft landing on my back & which resulted in me breaking one of my vertebra. Unfortunately my husband had gone out for a short while so I was on my own, in a lot of pain & not near the phone or my mobile. I managed to pull myself on my back across the floor to where the phone was & rang 999. There were no available ambulances in the area at the time but would send one to me as soon as they could. In the meantime I was to lie still & not to move head, back etc. Just over a hour later a first response paramedic arrived and gave me much appreciated pain relief & updaing ted the ambulance service as to what category I was. I was able to respond to all questions, I hadn’t been knocked out so was a low category. The paramedic did all his checks repeating them several times and which were all ok until things suddenly changed. I was aware of everything going on around me, but could neither talk or do anything he asked of me. As I got worse he contacted the control centre to upgrade the category & an ambulance was there within minutes. After about 15mins I was gradually able to respond again but it was a really strange experience & I can only think it had something to do with my MS, I have SPMS. Has anyone else had this sort of experience or know of anyone who has as it was really surreal?
