I had my first cardiologist appointment yesterday for POTS and I’m feeling frustrated. The Dr didn’t seem to be very familiar with POTS and couldn’t understand why I wasn’t feeling better on metoprolol since it lowered my HR. She said everything from maybe it’s not my heart at all to maybe I’ll need a pacemaker (??) to it’s probably all just in my head from unprocessed childhood trauma. Frustrated and not sure where to go from here.
I did a teledoc appointment today for an assumed sinus infection and got the "you're too young" speech literally everyone with chronic pain has gotten because I told him I take metoprolol for POTs. He was a nice guy but he said something like "at 24, you should be active and healthy"...like thanks I needed a little trauma on my lunch break
So I’ve been having quite the traumatic journey, I was hospitalized back in August feeling flu-like symptoms and when I got picked up from the EMTs my heart rate was at like 170. They took me in and put me on Metoprolol and that brought my heart rate down but made me feel basically useless, although it did subside after a while and I felt more normal. Once I was discharged, they didn’t have me on anything and my heart rate went way back up and I started having all sorts of weird symptoms
So excited to have found this app! I’ve got a cardiology appointment coming up and we’re stumped on why I’m having tachycardia! I tried metoprolol, but my blood pressure is already so low that it just made it worse. So annoyed!
hey y’all! so a little over 2 months ago i was diagnosed with POTS, and i started off on toprol and soon after my doctor added midodrine into the mix. they’ve helped a little bit not as much as i had hoped, since i’m still experiencing presyncope every day. my doctor said we might look into saline infusions but my insurance is iffy since i spend most of my year at college out of state. is there anything i can do or any other treatments out there to make my life a little better? thanks :)
