On 2 January 2013 Maz fell ill, he was having problems for a while with other issues, so we thought it was a normal bug that was going around. He was complaining of headaches and pain in his back.
On 3 January he said he had hurt his right arm which had swollen and we thought he had broken it. It was very painful and I said to him he needed to go to hospital to check it out.
On 4 January Maz was then complaining of pain in both arms and feet and he couldn’t get dressed or do basic day to day things. My friend took him to the accident and emergency department who sent him away as he wasn’t an emergency and sent him to see the out of hours’ doctor. The doctor said he has swollen joints and took bloods. He was then sent home with very strong pain killers at around 11:45am. He sat with me for a bit and then went to bed and within an hour I went to see him to see if he wanted any food or drink. At that time he had a headache and did not like the light and was in darkness in the room.
