Jean123 Posted February 15, 2005 Report Share Posted February 15, 2005 My adolescent son was just diagnosed with POTS. Although we have had some relief of receiving a diagnoses, we were also told that he has other symptoms not related to POTS. His has recently been wheelchair bond due to lack of leg coordination and his inability to balance. Because he gets pale immediately upon standing and states that he starts to see black dots his doctor wants him to see a psychologist to rule out anxiety. Has anyone ever experienced the sudden onset of problems (however not totally blacking out) everytime they stand up?We live in Texas and I have no idea where to go from here. The only tests that have been performed are EKG, chest x-ray, echo, MRI of the brain, and blood test.He also has his pressure monitored every week. His blood pressure lowers upon standing and his heart rate increases. He also has MVP. That is all of the info. I have received from his doctors. I fail to see the connection between standing up and ANXIETY! Can anyone help? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
