From Hyperadrenergic POTS to another type?


Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with hyperadrenergic pots in Vanderbilt, I had that for decades. Now, since I have been taking Synthroid for my Hypothyroid, my symptoms have changed drastically. Bradycardia replaced Tachycardia. Low blood pressure replaced High blood pressure. Hypoglycemia has gotten worse. Zero energy replaced low energy. Mental fog, GI problems, weight gain, Migraine, heat and cold tolerance, presyncope, muscle and joint pain are much worse. It feels like I have a new strange body. 

Please help. Some people here know much more than some health care providers, especially about POTS. I apologize for my long post.

Peace and love to all.

Dear @Heartbroken - I was told by my specialist that hyperadrenergic POTS can and usually will change over time. In my case this happened sometimes - that I developed Bradycrdia or low BP. Whenever that happened he decreased my meds or even changed them. This however can cause problems too b/c we are so sensitive to meds. Also - when is the last time they checked your thyroid levels? If you just started Synthroid maybe the levels are not within range yet or too high? How is your Vit D and Vit B12? The last time I was in your shoes they were all low, as well as my ferritin. With proper supplementation the fatigue and POTS symptoms improved.

Dysautonomia is dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system.  It can change or go back and forth.  But when you are taking a new medication and experience a change, it could be the mediation and not a change in your underlying condition.

Thank you guys for your replies, I really appreciate it. 

Pistol, My Vitamin D and thyroid with Synthroid last week were normal. No clue about ferritin and Vitamin B12. I will ask my Dr. next time.

yogini, good point. You may be right because I still feel the forceful ponding sensation with every heartbeat although it runs in the fifties and forties. Also my BP spikes up at times (most of the time is  88/49 but sometimes 16/110).
