No blood volume or testing yet. My doctor wants me to come in. The stress will make it worse so since I know what is wrong, I see no reason to go through all of it. A cardiologist figured it out months ago. I thought he was nuts, but as I read about it and watched many videos, I am 100% sure. Tests will not help. I am doing all I can.
I have no problem with anyone taking medicine if they can. I just have a TERRIBLE time with 99% of all meds. After major abdominal surgery, I took pain meds for a few hours and paid for it. Got VERY ILL. After that, NO pain med. It is very hard.
I have found that my supplements really are helping. Some days are pretty decent. Some, like today, not so much, ha. It has helped knowing what is wrong! I can stand up SLOWLY, move slowly, use a w.chair, not get hot, etc.
I take Benicar for high bp. with the POTS. THANKFULLY, I can take it!!!
I have a good attitude though. I love to dress up and go out to eat. Takes little effort. I used to garden, no more. But in our new home, we had landscapers redo the back yard. I love it. I have to have pretty things around inside and out. I love to decorate my home. It looks so nice. I do have to have someone clean now. I miss doing that. Hubby cooks. This is my island of calm.
