I had a CTA back in April when I was admitted to the hospital for "cardiac issues." They originally thought I may have had a PE but ended up being POTS. So I'm wondering if they will repeat the CT. I haven't heard anything from my POTS specialist, and I'll see him September 15 for a review of all my results and a treatment plan.
I'm tired all of the time, even after sleeping for 9+ hours every night. I originally started with GI symptoms... Acid reflux constantly, and becoming very breathless after eating any "large" meal. They were thinking I had gastroparesis, but my 4-hour gastric emptying study came back normal. Still have pretty bad acid reflux, but unsure why aside from autonomic issues. I get brain fog, all the typical autonomic symptoms, and have a resting pulse of 94+ and even higher when standing. I've been taking propranolol but still running tachy. I get pain in my arms and legs and have really sensitive skin which is sometimes painful to touch, I'm awaiting my biopsy results for SFN. I had an abnormal QSART with very low output on my arms, and no sweating on my feet. I have pretty extreme heat intolerance and can't go outside at all if it's over 90. I had a 3 hour glucose tolerance test and a blood sugar of 38 on the third hour, so I'm also unsure what that means for me.
