goldicedance Posted February 24, 2007 Report Share Posted February 24, 2007 Yesterday, I went to the autonomic reflex screening lab at the Mayo in Jacksonville. There I had a sweat test (QVAR), not the one where you can sprinkled with orange powder and put in an incubator.I also had a tilt table test. At the Mayo they do a different version of the TTT. They do not give any medications to provoke a reaction. They tilt you up while monitoring your vitals. They do not wait for you to faint. I only stood for a few minutes before I got very lightheaded.On Monday, I see the neurologist to get the results.My heart rate responds crazy because of the ablations and the pacer. I am paced at 85 bpm. I still have some natural sinus rhythm but my rate can go high and then fall dramatically. Pacing at 85 bpm seems to help though the pacer clinic at Mayo said it could be bad for my heart muscle. I can't win. Feel ok now and damage my heart, or feel terrible and my heart will last longer. Not a great choice...I opt for feeling better now.Have any of you had the Mayo version of the TTT?Lois Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
