After 8 years of being sick, perhaps I am finally making some progress. Today the FNP wrote a prescription for florinef for what appears to be POTS. My official diagnosis is, "you have some kind of autonomic disorder". I know that's not very specific, but compared to the way I've been treated up to now, this is HUGE. If the florinef helps with my OI, is there much chance I will feel better overall? The orthostatic intolerance right now is mostly a nuisance. I feel so horrible overall, I hardly spend any time upright, so there's not much standing to tolerate! Does this drug cause the kind of dependency problems seen with prednisone? That drug is really scary, the adverse effects are so bad.
