Near Heart Attack Changed WCA

PostPosted: Wed Sep 19, 2012 7:22 am

Hi all.

i was meant to have my WCA on the 18th of this month (september).

i have been suffering from depression and anexity since getting the letter back in may. i also had been self harming.

i was getting more and more worried about going on tuesday and i didnt wont to go.

on sunday i spent most of the day in bed as i was very tired. (i have fibro and costo)

i went to bed and had a sharp pain down my left arm. i also had chest pain which i thought was costo.

i woke up at 6am with heaveyness and pain in my chest. this lasted until 8.30am. i decided that it might be a good idea to see my doctor.

she did an ecg and said that it wasnt costo and quickly gave me 300mg of asprin. next thing i know i am rushed of to hospital with the beginings of a heart attack.

they did my bloods and found that my tropoine level was 8. they said that i had unstable angina due to stress. after 11 hours on a very nasty bed they said that my levels where stable and i could go home.(more because they couldnt put me in a ward). they are sending me to a cardiologist and i think i am going to have a tredmill test.

i am resting now and i am wondering how to proceed. my dad phoned atos and told them. they where very sheepish and said they would rearrange my wca.

i have been told by the doctors that i need to be careful and not get stressed out again as i might end up having a full blown heart attack.

so i dont really know what to do now. i am worried that if i go to the wca that i will end up in hospital again or even die.

i know it sounds a bit extreme but i am worried about it.

if any one has any ideas then that would be great.

i am still getting over the fact that i nearly had another heart attack.

at least i no longer have a problem with self harm.

any advice would be great.

thanks.

Chris(munclesmubb)

Unfortunately the stress of Atos appointments affect a great many of us, the stress is huge. It may be worth asking either your doctor or specialist at the hospital to put something in writting about the affect this appointment and associated stress could have on you..or request a copy of your hospital notes from the incident and send them a copy. Hopefully that may be enough to negate a face to face interview and if a medical is still nescessary they could come to your home to do it.I hope you feel a little better soon.
My husband has unstable engina and it's troubled him for some time,but he's never been told that stress can cause an attack...but having seen whatyou've written it would fit very much with his attacks, and stress could definately be a trigger as excerise etc doesn't form a pattern of his angiuna..fortunately he was at the cardiologist hooked up to a monitor when he actually had an attack...so they could directly see it. They gave him a spray and said no more :(.

Maybe seeing if you could have a home assessment would help things a little :-? :-? :-? There have been a couple of mentions of the home ones recently, and I think one of the nublets of info given was that letter(s) from your GP, consultant/specialist supporting the assessment being done at home are needed.

Might be worth looking into it a bit more :wave: :wave:

Not surprised you are worrying.I hope you feel better than you did. I dont think they are really aware of the extent of the stress they are causing people. Or they dont care. It is by no means as bad as youve had things,but when I lost my ESA and appeal, I was forced onto jobseekers. I went through a very traumatic month with the jobcentre, with one thing and another,and my blood pressure shot up to 197/95. I have suffered with BP probs for a few months now, but that proved to me at least, that all this hassle we're going through, is no good to our already poor health. I wish you well for your assessment. xx

Chris I agree with Flup ask your Doc for a letter saying you need a home assessment get all your nublets of info together and phone them then sent it in if requested its the least they can do, I'm sure they wouldnt want it in the paper that they have caused yet another person to have a heart attack :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: Get plenty of rest and :fingerscrossed: things settle down for you :-D

Thanks for the advice everyone.

I am going to see my gp.

I got a new wca this morning. Its for the 9th of october. We are going to talk to my gp and see if i can get a report of what happened. I am going to try and get them to at least give me a home visit.

Thanks again. I will keep you all informed.

Chris.

hi all.

thanks for all the replies.

i saw my gp today. she said that i need to have more tests. so she is refering me to the cardiologist.
she also said that i am to tell the dwp that i am not fit for work at the moment and that i am not to have a WCA.

she is really worried that the stress might put me back in hospital. she said that she will support me which is good.

they are not sure what happened but they know that it wasnt a full blown heart attack. but they do know that something happened.

so i am going to write to the dwp with a copy of the hospital report and ask them to at least put of the WCA until i have seen the specialist and had a treadmil test.

hopefully they will be helpful and change the date. how they think a heart problem can get better in 3 weeks i dont know.

i will keep you all updated when i know more.

cheers.

chris

Hi all.

I just thought i would give a quick update.

I sent atos and the dwp a letter saying that my gp doesnt want me to have a wca until i have seen the specialist and had some tests done. I attached a copy of my hospital discharge letter which says on it if i get any more chest pain then i am to go straight back to hospital.

After a few problems with the post atos finally got the documents.

As the wca is on tuesday we thought it might be wise to check what is going on. We then find out that one of atos's doctors had looked at my letter and said that i still had to go on tuesday.

My gp being very concerned about this has now sent them a letter saying that she thinks it will be fatal for me to have a wca.

We have been told to phone on monday to see what atos says.

At the moment i am just about keeping out of hospital. I have had chest pain every day for the last week but it hasnt been bad enough for me to go into hospital yet.

If they do say i have to go then i dont know what to do. My parents have been sorting everything out for me so far but i think i will have to contact the cab for more help.

I am worried at the moment and i cant see how i would be able to have a wca.

I will let you all know what happens on monday.

:(

hi all.

i think i have had a victory thanks to my dad and GP.

as you know i was told not to attend the wca until i had seen the speicalist. atos's doctor had said that i had to.

my Gp sent a letter to atos on friday saying i was not to attend.

so my dad phones today and we are told that they hadnt got it. so we phone my gp and they re send. then atos says they still dont have it. so we phone my gp who says they will ring them as they have sent it twice today and once on friday.

we phone back after lunch to be told that atos has cancelled the wca as they now say i dont need a wca at all and that they have now passed it onto the dwp.

so i dont know what my gp wrote but what ever it was it worked.

we have been told to contact the dwp to see what happens next. i assume that it means i might be put in the support group which would be great.

i will let you guys know what happens next. i just thought it would be good to share this sort of good news.

i am also seing my speicalist on thursday so that will be good.

thanks.

chris :crazy: :roll: :lol: :shock: :-D
