Just had my cardiology consult. He seemed a little annoyed that I didn't have specific heart disease related questions and ended up asking him about dysautonomia instead. He said there's no evidence that I have actual heart issues. I asked him how I can tell the difference between my "normal" heart rate issues and something serious. Then we got into the fact that I have blood pooling, dizziness, vision blacking out, heart rate changes based on positioning. So he ordered a tilt table test for October. Says if that comes back negative then I definitely don't have any form of dysautonomia. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I guess I'll have a better idea at the end of next month. If the tilt table test is negative then I don't know what it can be and he seems to think if tilt table is negative that then we're done looking for problems. Hoping I am just misreading him. I need answers. I can't handle the not knowing what is wrong with me. What is your experience with tilt table tests? Trying to prepare myself to reduce the anxiety about it. They said it's 2 hours strapped to a table and I don't like to be confined so I'm worried already. πŸ™ˆ #dysautonomia #tilttabletest #pots
