Dory Posted January 8, 2005 Report Share Posted January 8, 2005 My 19 year old daughter suffers from a condition that the cardiologist says is "fainting" tilt test has confirmed that her heart rate quickens and her blood pressure drops. I think she has POTS but the specialist said that POTS people do not black out, they faint, but do not lose concisness for any amount of time like my daughter does, when she blacks out it can be for an un specified amount of time until she comes around or until some one brings her around. The doctor has put her on ? It is a steriod based medication that requires her to take potassium. It does keep her upright but she is still un well and has trouble sleeping, headaches and sickness in her stomach. Can any one tell me if this sounds like POTS please.thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
