Congenital Heart Defect Anyone?

I've been trying to control my POTS symptoms for over 1.5 years. I've gone through numerous cardiologists who have tried to treat my symptoms. I'm seeing an EP doctor in Little Rock, AR and he ordered a bubble echo and found a congenital heart defect. I now need to go back for a TEE (transeophageal echo) to see how big the hole is. Wondering now if this is maybe the cause of my POTS. I'm holding out hope that maybe if they fix the hole it would resolve my tachycardia. I'm sure the high salt diet has been great for my heart if this defect is the problem! Time will tell I guess!!

Nancy ... I was wondering if you have 2 holes have you had any fixed or do you not need to? I'm not sure if I'll need mine fixed until after I have my TEE next week.
