Guess what my referal finally when though!!! I am going to to Cleveland! I am very happy yo me going but......... worried. I worried that what the outcome is going to be as this seems like a last chance kind of thing! After going from doctor to doctor telling me i have every from heart problrms, to having a pacemaker put, to be told it was in my head, to derpression, and the list goes on. Then a fem months ago telling me I have POTS. I turly beleive POTS is the 1st thing that really makes since, and meets all the things that seen to be going on, but am worried I will go out there and say, yes you have POTS like the other doctor, and say there no real treatment that will work for you, or come up with a hole new thing, I know that sounds dumb, but after 5 1/2 years of going thouhg this I have found out any thing is possable. At the same point I am really happy about going and hope they can find the right treatment for me! I know this my sound dumb I am just scared.

So I am off to Cleveland for test. My 1st appointment is on October 18. The first test I have is going to be a tilt table test. ( I had one about 3 years ago, and i was the worst thing I got sick, and passed out, I hope that doesn't happen again, plus I not sure it it will all work the same now as I have a pacemaker?) Anyways thought I would give you all an undate of what was going on!

WOW that is great that you got in to the cleveland clinic.. to be seen..

I really hope tha tthey can help you and offer you some kind of treatment to help you feel better..

Its kind of bitter sweet finding out that you have pots.. and then finding it hard to find a good doc to treat you.. and then the process of having to find that right treatment combo that works for you..

I know what you mean about the TTT (til table test) I have had 4 of them done.. and the one that I had done in october 2004.. was the worst of all 4.. I got so sick allmost instantly when they stood me up..I came very close to passing out.. but did not loose total consciousness..

I wish you well and hope that you get some answers and help at the cleveland clinic!!

sunfish,

Let me know it would be nice to meet someone else in person that has POTS!

It is very normal for us to wish that there was a cure. I know that no one every wants to hear they have pots , but at least they have a diagnoses that makes sense and they can help your symptoms more so than without a diagnosis. Good luck I hope everything goes GREAT FOR YOU!!!!! Rita s
