Guest Julia59 Posted July 10, 2006 Report Share Posted July 10, 2006 Has anyone ever gone for an independent functional capacity exam? In other words---I set this appointment myself. Can you tell me what to expect?With POTS our days can be good one day and bad the next---or even good one minute and bad the next minute. I've had a lot of problems all over my body lately---not just the usual POTS stuff, but spine, and EDs related stuff also. But there are time that I can fold a basket of laundy, cook dinner ect. Not all in one day, but if I space things out I may accomplish quite a bit on a good day. On a bad day I still force myself to move about, but I don't fair well, I just do it to keep myself from becoming deconditioned. I rest the majority of the time, but take a walk around the house---go on the computer----feed the dog---something real simple, but something to get me off the couch.There are days it's difficult to hold me head up---or I find it overwhelming to get my medical records in order, or use my mind to do anything challanging.I will be going to a PT/rehab dept. for the exam---It takes about two hours...........Thanks for any help in advance...........
