LindaJoy Posted April 13, 2006 Report Share Posted April 13, 2006 Hi, everyone.It's been a long haul. I've been in the hospital twice in the past month, the first time for two days, the second for ten days. Now I'm at the Cleveland Clinic. My POTS is HORRIBLE! My family doctor finds the whole condition fascinating, so he's been playing with my meds since January. I've gone from Paxil to Celexa to Zoloft without a break, in 2 1/2 months. Then, my bladder began to hurt. They're checking me here for IC. So far, nothing. I have to come back in a month for a cystoscopy and other test. I also see Dr. Fouad for my POTS tomorrow because I"m going into tach all the time, and all of my other POTS symptoms are all out of control. My POTS is the worst it has been in awhile. My doc. put me on cymbalta in the hospital, and it began causing me anxiety to the point I now have to take ativan twice a day. At home, pre-hospital, I was also given pyridium for my bladder that led me into autonomic storms, one right after the other, for 8 hours. I felt soooooooooo nervous after that, like every nerve in my body was ready to go off for any reason. Two days later, I went into severe tach that landed me in the hospital for ten days. I feel like one big, raw nerve. Can anyone relate to any of this? I just feel like I"m falling apart. I can't imagine ever feeling good again. I'd love to hear from you all, let me know I'm not alone.Thanks.LindaJoy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
