A woman says she has been left traumatised after suffering '48 hours from hell in A&E'. Tracey Elliott, 55, claims during her horror hospital experience she was left overnight in a corridor and made to wait for hours before receiving any treatment.

The 55-year-old spent two days in two Greater Manchester’s hospitals and was left far from impressed by her treatment. She attended A&E with an urgent letter from her doctor suspecting her of having cauda equina syndrome, reports Manchester Evening News.

The syndrome is a rare and severe type of spinal narrowing where all of the nerves in the lower back suddenly become severely compressed.

It may require emergency surgery, because the longer it goes untreated, the greater the chance it will lead to permanent paralysis and incontinence, according to the NHS.Tracey’s diary of events, reads: “My ordeal began on November 29, having been referred immediately to A&E with suspected cauda equina, a medical emergency.
