AJVDK Posted October 23, 2005 Report Share Posted October 23, 2005 Hello All,Well its been a long week. My husband, my son and myself flew out to Cleveland this last monday. I saw Dr. Fouad-Tarazi. Wow she really seem to know her stuff. I know that sounds dumb, but over the last few years trying to find somone that can find and treat (POTS) whats going on was been hard. I had a tilt test on Tuesday. They cam back and said I had a positive test. (so I was thinking darn, I thought they would find somthing.) Only to find out that ment they found somthing wrong. The docotr came in and told me she wanted to do futher testing as the tilt test showed some things, but they wanted to look into more. So I had a blood volume test. ( Hope that's the right thing to call it) They found that my blood is flowing way to fast.) Also during the tests I was having many PVC's so they are going to have my Doctor here start me on a beta blocker again in hoping that this will help, also I have to start using compression stockings, and start going to Cardiac Rehab Program. ( Really not sure about all this, but if it will help I am willing to do what ever it takes.)So, on Monday, I am going to meet with my doctor here, and going to start all these things. ( other then the Compression stockings which I already started using.) So now that they found whats wrong, now it just come to treating it.We had a good time in Cleveland, my son's 4th b-day, was on friday, so we took him to the zoo. He had a great time. (I can say though I am glad to be home to Iowa! We got lost all three day we had to go to the Clinic, and we got lost from the airport to the hotel. )Anyways wanted to give you all the update, say thanks for all the support, and let you know I made it back! Hope you all have a great weekend! Amy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
