Clairefmartin Posted March 24, 2006 Report Share Posted March 24, 2006 Hello everyone,I finally had my TTT this morning, and I was hoping to have a blowout episode of fainting and my heart rate skyrocketing - but of course I felt great when I woke up this morning and not much happened at the test.I was lighheaded all morning (probably cause I couldn't eat or drink anything) and when they tilted me up my heart rate shot up to 123, and I saw spots, but then I leveled out and was actually ok. I don't know how to feel about this, there are days when I have had my heart rate taken when standing - or sitting for that matter, and it is up at 145. I am trying desparately to get a diagnosis, and it seems like I have these crazy feeling episodes at home or at work, but at the doctors or during tests I feel fairly ok. I think that my test will still qualify as POTS, I read that your heartrate has to go up 30 BPM or over 120 when standing, so I barely made it.I went to the doctors before the test to get my blood pressure and heart rate checked for the Vanderbilt application, and when I stood up there my heart rate went from 72 to 110 and I almost passed out. Thats good I guess, they recorded it, so hopefully I'll get into the study.Just wanted to vent...any suggestions/thoughts would be appreciated.Claire Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
