Hi just wondering if anybody as had problems in the workplace? I work for a well known supermarket in the UK. I have had attacks for a number of years but have become frequent over the past year having had to deal with some major stress. I was blue lighted out of work 2 days before Xmas having experienced probably my worst attack ever. I had been beating fast all night and in my wisdom thought I could go to work ( and drove ) and it would sort itself out. But no the sweats and blurred vision told me I needed medical help....now my boss was fantastic and got me help rather quickly. ...arriving at hospital I was found to be beating at 200......my point is tho I have had 2 more episodes since both needing hospital treatment.....I am on meds and waiting to see cardio..
I have needed to take time off and really causing more stress at the thought of going in....I have gone back but feel they don't understand and just get their absence procedure thrown at me....anymore time off from now will result in disciplinary action. ...I feel they don't believe me what it is like to experience AF.
As anybody else been through this? I stumbled across this forum by accident and your stories have given me hope......thanks.
