  1. Hi @bombsh3ll I appreciate your response! I have had about 10 courses of IVIG as I was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis in 2014 (misdiagnosis I actually have MS) It was very helpful and helped me a lot. Unfortunately it would only last for about 2 wks and each infusion was about 12 hours so it was difficult to keep up. My POTS specialist just recommended it to me but was not very specific as to why. He did mention that since I tolerated it previously and found it helpful it might be worth trying. That’s Interesting what you mentioned about the autoimmune question. I have MS and an
  2. Hi to you all! I was just curious if any of you have been prescribed or are being treated with IVIG for Hyper POTS? I have some confusion about if this is a typical treatment and how it could help. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks

  4. Hi @Pistol thank you so much for the information The metoprolol dose is not controlling the bp it was 185/100 today after attempting to work for a few hours for the first time in over a week it’s concerning and hopefully they will come up with some answers I am glad that the IV fluids have been helpful to you. I also have found that this has helped significantly I have been trying to figure out if water(electrolyte infused or otherwise) and salt are recommended or not? The doctors said that I should increase both and use compression stockings but doesn’t the water/salt al

  8. Hi to all, I am very confused on how to handle what is going on with my health. I’m very upset and disappointed with doctors responses and I was hopeful that someone could offer me any practical advice. I have been having for 7 years. I have been on Midodrine and metoprolol since then i had positive autonomic testing in 2012. I was diagnosed with “autonomic dysfunction “ but the doctors did not specify a type. subsequently I was diagnosed with inappropriate sinus tachycardia my symptoms have worsened significantly this year within the past 4 months I have been to
  9. Hi @yogini I spoke to my neurologist prior to starting this med and he is familiar with the issues related to Dysautonomia. There are only about 15 MS drugs and many of them have cardiac related issues so i am not a candidate. He was not familiar with any known issues but this is a very new med so I’m sure there could be lots of unknown issues. My cardiologist is a “neurological” issue specialist and he did not know of issues either. I did see several times an electrophysiologist in the practice but I have not seen him in awhile. Perhaps it would be prudent to give him a call. Thank you so so
  10. Hi I have been on Midodrine and Metoprolol since 2013 after numerous syncopal episodes and a positive tilt table. Since beginning these meds I have been free of symptoms until last month. I have Multiple Sclerosis and I began a new infused medication called Ocrevus last month. Since beginning these infusions I have had multiple pre-syncopal episodes and I went to the ER after hitting my head upon passing out. This medication has only been approved since 2017 so I am sure it is unknown how it can impact all patients. I was curious if any of you have had similar issues after
