shes had it for the past hour sorry forgot to use ,.?

Why not call NHS direct too, see what they say? If they say 999 too then you know what to do. Hope she's ok!

i had something similar recently with NHS Direct. I had an awful pain in my chest, the right side, hurting more as i breathed.

I called them, and as soon as i said chest pain, they wanted to call for an ambulance. I knew it didnt warrant that, and spent ages trying to convince them, but they still sent one out blush

The lovely ambulance people came out, and sent me off to walk in centre (my own transport).

Was then diagnosed with bad chest infection.

NHS Direct are great, but sometimes it sticks a little too literal to the computer hmm
