Lindsay Mold Posted June 16, 2011 Report Share Posted June 16, 2011 Hi, i had a tilt test and autonomic function tests last week and saw the doctor for the results on tuesday. I do have pots!(i have m.e/cfs too). He said on the tilt, my hr went straight up tp 135 and later on was 170. I forgot to ask what my bp was. after 5 mins of the tilt i started shaking and it just got worse until i was having violent all over tremors. Ive had this quite alot before from different things, talking or too much noise. I asked why it happened and they didnt know. Does anyone know why? The doc said the autonomic function tests pointed towards pots but didnt explain any further. i always forget to ask at the time! During the function tests one doctor said, look she has hives on her neck, does this normally happen? To which the nurse said no. Has anyone else had this?Any way ive been put on ivabradine. I also have to have a 24 hour hr and bp monitor.The doc asked my symptoms(i hadnt seen this doc before) and i was explaining the awful feelings i get in my head. Im constantly dizzy, drunk feeling, spaced out, feel like im putting and have an awful pressure feeling in my head. he got me to stand up and close my eyes and he had to keep catching me as i was swaying forwards and backwards loads. I know this happens always when i stand, even with my eyes open. he also got me to walk along a straight line and i couldnt do it, i looked drunk. Does anyone have this and do you know why?Thanks.
