  1. I have also had a postive d-dimer two years ago when my doc first began to suspect POTS. Everything was clear for me just like badhbt, though. I was told that those test are very sensitive and come back positive often when there isn't anything there. However, because of the seriousness of the issue, they are obligated to follow through. So glad you are ok!
  2. I don't have the neck stuff, but for a couple of weeks I had TERRIBLE head and facial pressure. I felt like my head was going to explode. It wasn't a headache either it was just intense pressure. I would also get it in the bridge of my nose, my temple area, and my teeth (upper and lower). No sinus issues what-so-ever. I kept telling my husband that I felt like someone had their fist inside my head or nose or where ever trying push it through. It was literally driving me crazy!!! I couldn't stand it. I felt like I was going insane also. I have no idea what brought it on or what made it go away.
  3. I tried propranolol some years ago, for hyperthyroid symptoms, and I couldn't tolerate it either. It just dropped my BP so much that I would almost pass out and I had littles at that time, ages 3, 2, and newborn. I was, however, fortunate to find something that helped. I also agree with everyone else. If you have anyone at all you can call on for some help, please do. A woman's body/hormones can do crazy things after giving birth and to have to compound that with POTS is a miserable mixture. I pray that you will get relief. I know there have been many times in my life dealing with health issue
