cardiactec Posted August 10, 2007 Report Share Posted August 10, 2007 Hi all,I have been spending some time up at a local hospital in an EP lab doing various things that dont require me to be standing. I met an EP doc a few weeks ago that I have been working with.....he asked me yesterday why I never scrub in to cases or why I'm not in the lab permanently and so I told him about the POTS diagnosis.........he asked what my HR's were and I told him off meds they crank to 200 BPM...........he looked at me and said "there is no way that is POTS, I just have a hard time that with a HR that fast, it is pots, I've never heard or seen anyone with HR's that fast with pots " ........I have heard so many things in regard to pots and my rates -- that 200 BPM, though very high and not typical of pots can still BE pots, that a rate that high definitely isnt pots, back and forth back and forth............this EP doc ended up giving me the name to another EP doc in boston that he said I should go see for further investigation .....I know there are few and far between on this site with rates like this, but I know there are at least SOME of you here........if your rates are this fast, can you respond to this message and tell me if any doctor has ever suggested a possibility of something other than pots going on because of the very fast HR factor?thanks,cardiactec.
