  1. Last night I was sitting on the couch talking to a friend when some thing very strange happened. My vision got fuzzy and I got a huge squiggly line floating in my vision. My Bp went up 164/99. I felt dizzy and of course scared to death. It lasted for about 1 1/2 hours until i finally feel asleep. I woke up this morning with my left arm tingling and my usual headache(arm is better now). I see my LLND tomorrow and will tell her but I'm wondering if any of you have had some like this, or know what may be going on? And the fight continues on...
  2. I was diagnosed with POTS in January 2014 by my cardiologist. He thinks it is brought on by my recent diagnoses of lyme and co-infections. At the risk of sounding stupid: From what I read on this site, it seems like most peoples blood pressure goes down with pots symptoms. My BP has been going up with tach. I'm wondering if I was misdiagnosed or maybe I'm just weird:/ My other question is how important are SSRI's in treatment? My new Beta blocker seems to be helping my pots symptoms (for one 1/2 weeks) but I'm afraid to drive or do much for fear of...I'm wondering if it's mostly anxiety/depression that's keeping me down. My Doctor doesn't want to put me on SSRI now. She feels with treatment for lyme and co's these symptoms will go away. I would appreciate any thoughts on high BP and pots. Also, pots treatment with SSRI's. Thank you in advance, this seems like a very supportive forum:)
  3. Thank you for sharing your positive story. I'm new to this site.
