sarct Posted June 13, 2011 Report Share Posted June 13, 2011 I had a tilt table test done back in 2008, and I was tilted up for about 11 minutes. Nothing happened, so they ran the adrenaline. Just before they were about to end the test they had said they were about to stop. I told them I was glad, becuase I was beginning to feel sick. Well, that caused them to continue the test. I kept asking them to stop the test, because I got progressively more agitated, sick, and sweating like crazy. I began screaming at them to end it, I remember a state of trying to hang on with everything I had, but nothing would alleviate my feelings, so I went limp. I don't think I fainted. I conciously remember giving up. I can't explain it. Once they put me horizonatal I must have at some point gone unconcious for a spell, because when I came to the techs were in disagreement on what happened. If I had crashed or I didn't. I didn't get to know how this concluded, because all of a sudden I got the sensation of a limb that is asleep waking up, all over my body. I was wretched with pain as blood began flowing through my whole body. My stomach, I threw up. It was a terrible mess. I was in pain for about 10 minutes. I wanted the straps off so I can move my limbs and run away from the pain, but they would not release me. I was in agony. Once I began feeling better the tech looked at me, and said, "well, you failed" So, I thought I failed it. But after going to the doctor I learned that I had passed it. Honestly, it felt like I had died and came back to life. How could I have passed the test?Has anyone ever had this tilt table test reaction before? I just made an appointment for a doctor I found in the DINET physicians list, and I am going to start the diagnoses process all over again. I have been diagnosed with POTS, back in '08, but the doctors I saw didn't really know about the condition. Now that I am getting symptoms again, I want to really delve into what is wrong with me, and try to figure this out. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
