Don't be embarassed about your ailments! You have legitimate ailments. I am embarassed for the paramedic, and his two women cohorts. You, in my estimation, are doing the right thing, by writing a letter about the way you were treated. I would follow up with my Dr., when you feel better, and try to find out if he made a compliant on your and his behalf.
I am sure others will be on-line soon with further responses to your posting!
