    Hi rimme,

    Welcome to Old Style. :)

    The best thing you could do is get advice from your GP, local pharmacist, or contact NHS Direct on 020 7599 4200

    I'm sorry to hear about your problem but I'm afraid we aren't allowed to ask for medical advice on this forum (see here for more details) so I'm going to have to close this thread.


    Hi, Martin’s asked me to post this: Sorry, giving or asking for medical advice is not permitted on this forum as it’s not what this site is about. While discussing medical insurance policies, cheaper ways to see consultants, cashback for alternative health treatments and how to get specific medication cheaper (legally) are all perfectly acceptable we ask you specifically not to discuss what to do in the event of certain medical problems (please see this rule on the Health Board). If you have any questions about this policy please email [EMAIL="abuse@moneysavingexpert.com"][email protected][/EMAIL].
