  1. My primary care dr sent me to a cardio a while back for palpations.. Chest pain/ pressure.. Heart racing.. Every time I stand the room goes black ect.. ect.. So he did all the normal tests echo..EKG.. Stress test which I couldn't even finish.. He told me I was out of shape and I had severe anxiety.. I DO NOT have anxiety!! But I digress.. I went back to my pcp bcause I was getting worse.. He sent me to the same cardio for TTT.. I was sure I got a diagnosis bcause my heart rate was waaayyy up there and kept trying to pass out dizzy lightheaded all the symptoms x100.. My cardio told me it was nothing and I would grow out of it.. If didn't feel right to me so I ask for my test results and boy did that set off a chain of events.. He was obviously avoiding getting me my results.. I reported him to the hospital and still nothing.. After a while I finally got a paragraph emailed to me that said my heart rate never got over 100 and I had NOTHING.. I was absolutely fine.. I knew this was wrong bcause I heard the techs discussing how concerned they were about my hr.. I finally go and get my "raw data" and it blew my mind.. Although if may be just a mild case of POTS bcause my hr went up 33 bpm in the first 10 minutes but after that it climbed all the way to 188 and I was so extremely sick.. He never mentions this in his report.. Is this all in my head or do I keep pushing for a dx Thank yo hall in advance for your input
  2. Thanks everybody.. I'm just completely ready to give up on a diagnosis.. They make me feel like I'm a nuisance, and just tell me I'll grow out of it.. But thanks for the great information and encouragement!!
  3. So sorry for not listing sptoms.. Almost a daily migraine.. Heart rate rises upon standing and my eyes have this black-out sensation where everything goes black.. A head and heart rush that feels like I have too much of something going to my head and heart.. Dizzy upon standing and lightheadedness.. Extreme fatigue.. Extreme brain fog to where sometimes at the end of the day I can't recall my day.. And the list goes on and on..
  4. Hi! My name is Bridam. I have lurked here for a few months but this is my first post. I have been searching for an answer to my symptoms since October. My Cardio ( whom I have zero faith in) did the standard echo stress and EKG.. Everything normal.. I see my primary again bcause I'm no better and getting worse. He sends me for a TTT thru my cardio and even tho I would've rather been strapped to that table for a lethal injection bcause my symptoms became so bad he says I didn't pass out so everything is normal.. Huh? I know for a fact my hr was in the 180's and had every symptom except passing out. This whatever it is is destroying my everyday life, and No one will diagnose me with anything. The way I feel isn't normal. What I would like to know is there anything I can do to help myself? Is there a special diet to follow? Anything? I am so frustrated and annoyed. I don't even want to see another dr for a very very long time. Sorry the post is so long .. Please help?
