Palpitations Forces me to Seek Advice
On Thursday evening I woke up with sever palpitations. After a while it disappeared and I slept further.
Just before 1am I suddenly experienced palpitations again and decided to wake my wife. 30 minutes later and it did not go away. At about 2am I decided to call CrisisOnCall. I spoke to sister Loraine and she asked me a lot of questions. How does my arm feel, do I feel pressure on my chest etc.
During our conversation I mentioned to her that I suffered back pain and took Advil IB. She said to me that she would like to check something about the pills. And it is then that she read it to me, that one of the side effects of this drug is palpitations. She gave me some advice and asked if she could phone me back within 20 minutes. She phoned back and my wife told her that I was much calmer. I went back to bed and had a good night’s rest. Saturday morning I received a call from Alicia to find out how I am doing. Now this is service!
Needless to say, I did not use the pills again and my back pain was gone. The advice from your staff to sleep with a small pillow between my knees, alleviated the back pain. The pills are now packed away.
Thank you, you saved my life. Now I can sleep easier and feel healthier.
Many thanks. – Manie Jansen and Louise
Sick girl gets help
My daughter, Hanica started getting diarrhoea on Thursday night. Friday morning, I took her to the Polio clinic close by. After a long wait, they sent us to the paediatric department. They gave her some polio drops, a measles injection a multivitamin and cough mixture.
Hanica was still sick by late afternoon. I decided to call CrisisOnCall for help. While I got telephonic advice for dealing with Hanica, they sent an ambulance.
They called me regularly to see how Hanica is doing and if the ambulance has arrived.
The ambulance arrived in short order. They worked very well with Hanica and took Hanica and me to the Pretoria-West hospital.
Thanks to their help, Hanica is doing well. Thanks again for your help and excellent service from the ambulance service.
