lets say that ICP is high or low and cerebral fluid is stuck and blocking blood flow to the brain. Why would one’s blood pressure still drop?
In my case for example, I had a tilt table test and I was fidgeting a lot. Nothing was happening but then the cardiologist noticed my fidgeting (which I realize now was a way to self treat POTS) .. he made me hold still and within 10 min I was almost completely unconscious.
Would that be a indicator that I do also have lax veins and venous pooling in lower extremities?
I’m working on getting my doctor to try out the Diamox but in the meantime I’m on all the typical POTS treatments (salt, fludro, midodrine) but I find my symptoms are not typical.
Any thoughts are welcome and appreciated
