They could have identified it as a vegemite shawarma, since the OP couldn't hear them, anyway.

My coworkers and I were just having this discussion at work. When a doctor dismisses your concern, ask them to note in your file that you are specifically disagreeing and requesting additional investigation and that they are specifically denying the request.

One coworker was finally diagnosed with Stage IV endometriosis after ten years of arguing with her doctors. She had cysts up to her lungs and, when the competent doctor looked into her records, there were zero notes that she had ever complained of severe pain. An other's sister had severe abdominal pain that was dismissed as bad period cramps and she pleaded because her cramps had never been like this. One of her Fallopian tubes had ruptured and she was bleeding internally.
