| | Symptoms of POTS?
I'm a 25 year old female and have been struggling with lightheadedness for the past three months. It's non-stop 24/7. It's also accompanied by intense tension headaches and pain in the back of my neck. I have gone to the doctor several times and they insist that it's just from anxiety and they sent me to physical therapy to help with the neck pain. I've had all kinds of blood work done and everything came back fine. My headaches have somewhat improved, however, my lightheadedness feels like it's getting worse. I can barely stand in line at the grocery store or at the bank. I have borderline prolonged QT which I have been taking Inderal LA for for 10 years and after several EKGs, holter tests, echos, stress tests, all cardiologists agree that it's not from the prolonged QT. I've been reading about POTS and I'm starting to think I have it. I have the lightheadedness and the inability to stand for long periods of time, but my heart rate does not increase when I stand up like it does in people who suffer from POTS. Any ideas or thoughts? I'm only 25 and I can't live my life like this! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
