Brwneyedchica Posted February 4, 2005 Report Share Posted February 4, 2005 I bought a new house and haven't posted in quite some time. I've been so exhausted and ill most of the time unfortunately. I've been missing alot of work, and had to withdrawl from the class I was going to take. I've had to withdrawl from classes the last few times i've tried to take them. I'm going to put school on hold for awhile, until I'm feeling better( i'm going for nursing). I have been seeing a gastroenterologist, my biggest problem has always been nausea and vomiting and more recently unceasing diarrhea and abdominal cramping. I've had a flexible sigmoidoscopy and an ultrasound of the bowel and gallbladder completed in the past few weeks. I also have a cardiologist, whom I haven't had to see since August. (I spent June and July in bed, I experienced severe nausea, SOB, sweatiness, walking made my heart race and my blood pressure increase from my normal 100/70 to around 166/90.) From what i've read, this specialist at the Cleveland Clinic seems very helpful. I work in Cleveland, and am thinking that perhaps I should see an actual POTS specialist, in addition to the other docs, especially since I work so close. I was diagnosed by a specialist in 2000, but had a hard time getting ahold of him when I needed him and thus haven't seen him in years. I can't imagine struggling like this just to get through the day and having a different solution being so close.... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
