lauralulu Posted January 11, 2010 Report Share Posted January 11, 2010 Did it help you in the path towards obtaining a diagnosis?This is the first test I am having done with my Cardio (who I've yet to meet). And, would you recommend that I mention POTS and ask him if he knows about it? My biggest fear really is being tested by someone who could miss the diagnosis. I have, thanks to persephone pointing out the STARS website, discovered that there is a cardio with an interest in POTS who works locally (not the one I'm referred to unfortunately) so if things don't seem to be going well with this one, I can always ask to be referred to the one that knows stuff about POTS. I really want to make sure I get tested for POTS properly because when I've done my 'poor man's tilt table' tests I have consistently had a heart rate increase of 30bpm or more. Plus I have lots of other wacky symptoms that it could explain. I just want to MAKE SURE I am being tested thoroughly and that nothing is missed! So any advice those who've been through this already (especially in the UK) can give, I'd appreciate very much! xx Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
