maryfw Posted October 18, 2007 Report Share Posted October 18, 2007 Ok. I am still fairly newly diagnosed with Pots/ncs and have yet to have my first followup visit with my cardiologist. I am on proamitine and am now on a 30 day event monitor. My doctor has not mentioned salt loading or blood volumes or anything like that. On my TTT my heart rate did not increase but everyday when I get out of bed it sure does. On the TTT my bp dropped to 64/??...........they couldnt hear a bottom number. As far as I know nothing else was checked on the TTT other than my heart rate and bp. It may be 2 more months before I see my doc for my 1st followup and when I call in about my sypmtoms her concern seems to be "Are you still passing out". Well passing out has never been my biggest symptom. Fatigue is my biggest symptom. She has told me not to have caffiene and I have stopped that all together. I drink water and gatorade all day long. So, should I be taking salt tablets? I just hate this waiting game to see her again. She is a very good doctor but a very busy one with patients with much more urgent needs than mine. thanksmary Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
