Before anyone comments with why this is a bad thing - I already understand the pro's and cons. If everyone did it, the NHS would be screwed, thankfully - not everyone does, so I will. The toss up between wasting NHS time and giving myself peace of mind is an easy decision to make for me - I care FAR more about my own health than the NHS's time.
Just wondering if anyone here has ever exaggerated symptoms of pain at A&E to get scans done more urgently? I've been having some bad abdominal pains, indigestion after every meal, a gnawing stomach pain, bloating and a change in toilet habits for about 6 months as well as a number of swollen lymph nodes. I'm seriously considering going to the doctors, pretending to have exruciating pain so that they will scan me for abnormalities. Kinda worried about Pancreatic cancer and since it's known as the 'silent killer' - I can easily justify a small lie to myself.
Anyone else has success with this?
