ramakentesh Posted November 6, 2005 Report Share Posted November 6, 2005 Having just returned from two months of 100% normal health overseas and finally the feeling that I might have moved the POTS thing behind me (background - symptoms started abruptly in 2003 - progressed until June 2004 and gradually improved until xmas 2004 where I have been fine - finally diagnosed Jan 2005 no treatment required due to improvement - bad reaction to all treatments offered - TTT demonstrated the highest nor adrenaline levels recorded in that testing centre - shucks )I have suddenly crashed SUPER bad - my vision is all weird again all the time, Im tired, dreadfully dizzy, foggy headed and trembly - its just so frustrating that just whenn you start to think this is behind you it whams you in the head again! My eye lids are starting to dropp like they did when i was really bad again - im starting to worry that this is gonna put me back where i started.Ive had some bad relapses but most last two to four day and im fine - its now ten days since this started (two days after returning from overseas so you can understand why i think its something environmental that triggers it here! My last crash was the year before a day after returning from a three week holiday in NEw zealand where i felt almost recovered).My only hope is licorice tea which will result in its usual 5 day period of migraines - but it will get rid of this terrible brain fog - brain constricted feeling.My doc says that this can be caused by reduced blood flow - but that they recently found that the arteries in the brain are constricting - like the body is trying to reduce blood flow to the brain for some reason. Im so over POTS... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
