Wow, that's horrible, I can't believe they treated you that way because they are a bunch of dolts who can't read. Can't read wristbands or charts that say what you're allergic to, can't read imaging results that show your intestine is doing contortional tricks and isn't working anymore. Please please have your doctor's office put in a note with the ER that you may be coming in anytime within the next 24 hours and that your problem is a folded intestine and not just constipation. That way if you do need to go in during the night, you won't have to try and get a hold of the doctor first when they are closed, and you won't be ignored at the ER since it's malpractice at that point after your doctor has informed them of your serious intestinal problem.
Good luck, I hope you don't have to go back there again and your doctor finds an answer for you.
