  1. Let me start by saying I originally thought I had POTS because my heart rate generally goes 30 or more bpm higher when going from laying down to standing. Well, I had the test today and it's weird - I wasn't symptomatic in any way and even with the adrenaline shot not much happened. the problem was I was anxious so my lying down heart rate was around 100. usually it's 70 so I was very nervous. standing it was around 115. my blood pressure didn't change much. But based on my symptoms that I told him about my cardiologist thinks it's orthostatic hypotension. But the strange thing is when I'm at

But the strange thing is when I'm at home and my heart rate is high (the other day standing it was 160!) my blood pressure is STILL normal. so I'm having a hard time feeling like the di
  3. Hmm... I also have PCOS. I am not diabetic. it being overweight tells me I am probably insulin resistant as well. I don't believe I have erythromelgia because I dont have the pain that goes with that. And i only have the blood pooling after standing for a couple minutes. I'll mention ot to the Dr. though just in case. Thanks for your comment!
  4. Oh, thanks! What is a normal person's heart rate rise when going from resting/laying down to standing?
  5. I thought resting heart rate (laying down) vs standing is what you use to measure to see if it's a 30 bpm difference? I haven't seen anywhere that says resting is sitting. Am I wrong?
  6. Thanks! I have a couple questions if you don't mind. Do my symptoms match POTS or is the fact that it fluctuates so much seem like something else? And any idea how my weight may play a roll in this?
  7. Hello everyone, forgive me if a question similar to this has already been posted. I tried searching and could not find one similar. I am a 25 year old female who is 6 feet tall and about 280 pounds so I am overweight and I don't know how that should affect my heart rate. But I have been having symptoms of POTS or some kind of dysautonomia so I have tried the Poor Mans Tilt Table Test. My resting heart rate goes down into the 70s (though it does seem to fluctuate quite a bit). Upon standing it can immediately shoot up into the 120s or even 130s depending on how symptomatic I am (this
