deeplyset Posted July 25, 2005 Report Share Posted July 25, 2005 I was wondering if I was abnormal or if there are other patients out there with POTS that experience the same thing that I'm experiencing after I collapse....I lose control of all my limbs (ie neck, legs, arms), as well as speech ability for about two minutes then when my speech comes back but it will be slurred for about 10-20 mintues (sometimes longer). I'm also usually confused and have a hard time talking and condination my hand and legs (it will take anywhere between 45 mintues to 3 hours for this to return). My eyes also will keep roll back into my head.During this time I have to stay flat or near flat or I will collaspe or faint/passout again. I have a really hard time breathing and will hypervinate easily. I feel like my whole body is not getting oxygen even though I'm breathing. I'm really weak the whole time.I call it being loopy. It will happen whether in vertical position or too relaxed sitting or laying down. It's brought on also when people mess with my neck area or shoulders to much.
