Was admitted and kept Emergency Room Observation Unit till moring when they did another nuc stress test on me which these take all day In between testings I was moved bach to my bed in the Emergency Room Observation Unit (all 6 of us in this little room were cardiac patients, all admitted, all waiting for testing the following day. Then I talked with a social worker and was released last night. I was impressed, personally I think they do this to cover there backside, but I got the greatest of care and an happy with it.

So i Missied my physc appoinement, the one tha I wanted my PCM from Gen Med to attend so we could discuss pain control.......................Now I have to see my cardiologist ASAP.

Sounds like a panic attack to me. Hope that you are feeling better now. The beauty of Hadit is if you miss a couple of days you can catch up latter.

Panic attach for sure, had a little tighness in the chest, then a little shallow breathing , thought about the loss of a good friend, then about I shouldnt sneak cigatettes, then this stress is gonna kil me. The WHAM it hit me like a ton of bricks, what it actually felt like was someone had poored a thick hot substance on my head and it was engulfing my body all the way to my feet. Took about 30 seconds to cross my entire body.......................I think it was anxiety and depression and they got the best of me

FLHRCI,

This has come up before. MAKE SURE YOU ARE DRINKING ENOUGH WATER! Dehydration will make you think you are having a heart attack. Also I had things happen like that when my C-4 (disc, not plastic explosive) was acting up. It felt like I got hit in the head with a board and was about to pass out. In any event call 911 when those symptoms hit.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
     
    Note:
     
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
