aclexis Posted February 22, 2007 Report Share Posted February 22, 2007 Hello everyone!I thought it was about time I posted I've been so busy with college & ye all know how hard it is to concentrate after a long day (of oh bout 5 hours!).My story is that I'm 24 year old woman diagnosed with POTS in November. It was first mentioned in March but my cardiologist didn't seem happy with the dx so I thought he was still looking around but he confirmed it there a few months ago with a TTT. I've been symptomatic since the July 2004 after waking up from a GA for a gynae operation. Besides the pre-existing gynae stuff and the new cardio stuff I also have the joy of suffering from IBS, nausea (that particular workhorse really needs to take a holiday but alas it seems to like me) and thermoregulation problems.Today is a good day so I thought I'd post and say hi in a positive way. It's a good day cos I'm having one of those "I CAN live with this" periods even though right now I'm tachy as heck after sweeping the kitchen floor and typing is fun cos my hands are kinda shaking. Today I can smile but tomorrow might be different so please understand that I really appreciate this forum and everyone who posts and shows so much compassion and empathy for the days when things don't seem possible or when they just simply are impossible.I live in Ireland and would love to hear from anyone who knows of a doctor who has an interest in POTS or general weirdness that accompanies a POTS patient. As I mentioned previously, I don't think my doc is happy dealing with me as he just gave me some betablockers and told me to get on my way (but in a nice and decent way of course).Oh dear this is a long post, my apologies! I look forward to posting more frequently in the future and hope everyone is having a not-so-bad day . - CJ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
