St David's South Austin Medical Center: "Worst ER in Austin. BP is 184/127 with a resting heart rate of 104. Said my blood sugar was good. IT was actually tested at another ER. It was 341. Doctor refused any pain medication but Tylenol.Said it could be a Fibromyalgia Flair. Still he doesn't believe in treating any pain with anything stronger than OTC Tylenol.Got tired of waiting to be released. I removed my IV and all my equipment. No one even noticed. I will die before I ever step foot in here again. And I hope someday Dr. Knows what pain feels like. And they dismiss him the way they did me and my pain. " - Barbara
