A 43-year-old woman who suffered from a number of illnesses died accidentally, an inquest heard.

Lianne Wright, of Bury Road, Stowmarket, died at West Suffolk Hospital on November 9 last year after falling the night before and suffering internal bleeding in her lower back.

Ms Wright suffered from a number of illnesses, including Fibromyalgia, for which she was taking medication, the inquest at Suffolk Coroner’s Court, in Ipswich, heard this morning. She was also taking blood thinners.

The inquest heard how the medication Ms Wright was taking for her Fibromyalgia would have reduced the pain she felt following the fall, and how her taking blood thinners could have contributed to her death.

Dr Richard Barlow, a junior doctor at West Suffolk Hospital, attended to Ms Wright on the night of her fall, and the following morning, when her condition swiftly deteriorated.

He said there was no evidence of internal bleeding until 8.50am on the morning of her death. By the time it was decided to operate on Ms Wright, it was too late, and she died.

Ms Wright’s sister and father, Rachel Cracknell and Melvin Wright, who were at the inquest earlier, questioned why a blood test was not carried out on her sister earlier given the medication she was on would have reduced the pain she felt from the fall.

However, the inquest heard even if a test was carried out sooner, an operation might not have stopped Ms Wright from dying.

Senior coroner Nigel Parsley concluded Ms Wright’s death was accidental, with the medication she was taking for her Fibromyalgia and blood thinners as contributing factors.
