Well, I was truly hoping to have the final answers today and have a plan. But I was sadly disappointed. Sigh. First off, my appointment was at 2pm, got there at 1:45 as instructed. I didn't see the doctor until after 4. They couldn't find the written report of my tilt table test. They were very nice and apologetic and I had time to read an issue of Shape and copy down a few recipes.
The doctor said my stress test was actually pretty normal. The tilt table test was another story, of course, but he said it still kind of put me in a gray area for POTS. He wants me to see their electrical specialist, so I have an app't with him next Monday. And he wants me to do another holter monitor test, but for 2 weeks and one that sends the data immediately back to the lab so they can constantly see what's going on. And then I follow up with him again in a month. And he put me on a beta-blocker to try that for a while. If that doesn't work, he said there may be a procedure they'll need to do. It seems that there's a short circuit in one of the chambers of my heart. They would go in through the leg and up to the heart. Hopefully I wouldn't wake up unable to move an arm like my son! :-P
I felt crappy and tired all weekend and I'm just getting TIRED of this. I did walk on Saturday, we danced that evening and yesterday I did my Ultimate Abs ball workout and weight lifting. The doctor said he didn't want me to do anything too strenuous, but walking is OK.
