So sorry you are having such a difficult time. I don't know what your history is exactly. But, it sounds like you need to see a specialist who will be pro-active in helping you find a treatment that will help you.

Regarding blood pressure, I have experienced both significant increases and decreases in blood pressure from sitting to standing. I suspect it is common with POTS to have such large variations in blood pressure, as it is something we don't regulate too well when we are in a flare-up mode.

Have you had a back injury in the past? I also remember having strange, very painful back pain episodes when my POTS was very bad. It was also blown off by doctors. I don't have it anymore, but I still wonder what in the world was causing it b/c it was quite painful and I have never injured myself.

Thinking of you, and believe better days are ahead for you.

HAyley, sorry to hear you are going through a difficult time. It can be so frustrating to be in pain and have to fight your way with the doctors in the ER. I so hope you will get some useful information from the specialist you are seeing in November. Sorry you have to be in the hospital for tests but perhaps they will give him more solid information that will help you improve.

With regard to BP mine rarely drops when I stand up and I have learned that in the first few minutes of standing it will increase but if I wait 10 minutes and take it again standing, it usually has dropped back to its "norm". My experience is that in the ER they don't really get too concerned with BP unless the second number is 100 or over and this is true for other family members who I have taken to the ER.

I hope you feel better soon.
