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
