blueskies1234 Posted January 7, 2010 Report Share Posted January 7, 2010 I'm new around here, but have been learning a lot so far! It's exciting to talk to people who know what I'm talking about!I am very confused about some things....What is the difference between inappropriate sinus tachycardia vs. POTS? I have been sick since May '09 which they think started as a virus (perhaps mono, but it wasnt confirmed). I've had 2 tilt table tests-one was more autonomic (and less accurate according to my doc), and the other was cardiac (with the nitroglycerin). The 1st autonomic tilt test showed 'Mild Orthostatic Intolerance', but not as bad as typically seen for a POTS diagnosis. My heartrate did increase 35bpm and had a high of 147.The 2nd tilt test (cardiac) gave me the diagnosis of 'Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia' due to the increase in heartrate (165bpm) without the normal drop in BP.The thing is, I have confirmed gastroparesis, unequal pupil size, extreme fatigue, fever, swollen lymph nodes, cold extremeties, I'm dizzy when I stand, brain fog etc. I'm not sure where to go from here? Should I be seeing a cardiologist, or a neurologist? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide :-) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
