swollen and felt hot so I knew something was wrong. I couldn't get the appointment with the GP because it was Sunday. I went there very early in the morning and I saw a consultant, she prescribed me antibiotics. Unfortunately they didn't do anything. It was getting worse so on August the 12th I went back to A&E and got it all sorted at last.
two months of doing the exercise my GP recommended, I was still feeling discomfort. I attended urgent care and the nurse who triaged me informed that an X-ray would not be advisable due to had a fracture been present it would have fused by now, and also because the X-ray was being used frequently by COVID patients. Instead I was offered a phone consultation. The doctor provided me with a wrist sling and advised me to follow up with my GP if I continued feeling pain so that they could give me a steroid injection. The sling has helped but I am still feeling pins at night time. An X-ray would've helped to put me at ease but I do understand the difficulty of the situation due to COVID.
