One Step Closer to an official Diagnosis 

So, I figured I’d give y’all an update about me since it’s been awhile. I’ve been struggling with my blood pressure and heart rate pretty bad lately, so my doctors decided to put me on a holter monitor for 48hrs. That was a week ago. During that 48hrs my tachycardia was documented. so we got an unofficial diagnosis of P.O.T.S Or Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia. But to make sure it wasn’t a Heart issue my doctor scheduled a EchoCardiogram (for those who don’t know what that is, it’s an ultrasound of the heart) my doctor wants to make sure that it’s not a valve in my heart causing these issues. Test results came back today and my heart valves are working just fine. So now it’s on to see if it’s more neurological and possibly a AutoImmune issue and the I’m currently waiting on my Tilt Table Test to be scheduled.
