  1. Thank God my job asked for Voluntary layoff for 3 months. It's so hard dealing with this Syndrome and trying to keep up at work at the same time. God bless all that have to do it full time.
  2. How are you doing post treatment? Prevpac made my POTS worse.
  3. I've tried Amitriptyline 10 mill in the day and 25 at night. The 10 mill kinda had me tired during the day but the 25 mills helps me sleep really good. Sorry nobody answered your post. God bless
  4. I was diagnosed with POTS about 3 years ago and just have had a run of bad luck since. 8/12 I was feeling really ill with Stomach problems and was sent to a Gastrointestinal Physician and they discovered HPylori went on a Triple Antibiotic med and was cleared of this but still was feeling ill. I was sent to a Specialist in Louisville who diagnosed me with Spastic Colon and was given Amitriptyline and it truly didn't help me. About a month ago I had another Endoscopy and was diagnosed with SIBO. Went on two antibiotics and still don't feel well. I wakeup with Severe Headaches and Lower back pain. I sweat a lot at Night as well and have noticed Dark Spots like Age spots coming up all on my upper body. I have a lot of floaters as well. I'm just so scared and don't know what I should do. I have to see my GP tom. Does anyone have any advice that I can share with my GP. I'm just so ready to give up. Thanks and God Bless.

  17. Margie, How are they treating you for Spastic Colon? I've been diagnosed with this as well
  18. Looking for a Dr or specialist if anyone can help. Thanks!!!
  19. Thanks a lot I really appreciate your help. Glad I came to this forum.
  20. Thanks Sarah, I appreciate it. I'm just so discouraged with My GP. He has not taken the time to look at all my Diagnoses all together and it seems like I have to do all my resourcing myself. I think I will start with My Cardiologist Monday and setup a follow up. It's just scary feeling like your about to fallout all the time.
  21. We'll in 2010 I was dealing with Dislocated ribs in my Upper back area Left side. Went to GP complaining of this issue. Was told it was a pulled muscle. We'll 8 months later I informed my GP again about my issue and finally did an MRI and discovered the slipped rib and was sent to Chiropracter and adjusted several times and that was over 25 visits and rib would not stay in place. We'll in 2011 I was in my Garage and I noticed my heart was beating out of my Chest when I stood up So I went to ER and was referred to A Cardiologist and was administered EKG, Monitors and Tilt Table test that confirmed my POTS. We'll I was then prescribed Bystolic 5 mg. And seemed to be doing alright with the Bystolic. So last summer I had a bad infected tooth and was prescribed Antibiotics for the Infection. After taking the Meds I started noticing my stomach would gurgle and I would get Headaches and Sweating. I informed my GP and he referred me to GI specialist and after a Upper EGD and Colonoscopy I was diagnosed with HPylori. Took the PrevPac for 14 days and took Stool Sample and Biopsy and was found to Eradicated. We'll I went to follow up visits and informed them that I still did not feel well and was sent to University of Louisville to see another Specialist and after him running several blood tests and me informing him of my ailments He diagnosed me with Spastic Colon and I'm so confused If it's POTS that can be the cause of all my issues? I wakeup with Crusty eyes and blurred vision and the veins in my eyes are becoming noticeable to I and My Wife. I wakeup with Headaches and just don't feel well. Should I request to see a Cardiologist and get more treatment for POTS? I'm just so confused and scared and want a better Quality of Life. I apologize for my rambling but I have never felt so bad in my Life. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
