Hello, This is my first posting to this list. Although, I have not been diagnosed with POTs, I have many of the symptoms. Inability to stand for any length of time without great fatigue, heart rate that increases from 80-120+ when standing, more so in the mornings, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, etc. I am looking for an MD referral in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am a nurse at a large teaching hospital and have spoken with several neurologists and cardiologists, no one knows what I am talking about. I am seeing my own MD regarding this for the first time regarding this on Monday but would appreciate any referrals in my area. thanks

This is the DINET referral list, which appears not to have a listing for anyone in SF :rolleyes:

However, perhaps you might call the doctor listed in LA and see if they know anyone in your area?

Here are a few other medical reference lists...this one is from NDRF>

and this one is from co-cure, a chronic fatigue group. while the docs may not be POTs specialists, they may at least have heard of it and be willing to work with you--again, no listings in SF, but there are listings nearby in Berkeley and Oakland.

Anyone out there with a name to add to our doctor list in the SF bay area? Please email me or Michelle.

Nina :)

ps. welcome to the board. It's kind of strange, but there are is a large group of our members who are or were nurses.
