I’m a 31 year old male, and I’ve had POTS my entire life. I was first officially diagnosed in July 2005 with POTS and Dysautonomia. I always had very mild POTS symptoms, and I never had to do any extreme lifestyle changes. My biggest symptom USED TO BE that I was super-mega-ultra-sensitive to medications/supplements/herbs. This all changed in 2009 when I started taking CDP-Choline (Citicoline) and Choline Bitartrate for several weeks. Each day I took it, all of my sensitivities immediately and permanently disappeared more and more. But there was a major setback. It kept taking it for too long, and after time, not only was I no longer sensitive to anything, but no meds/supplements/herbs worked anymore the right now, and it left me permanently fatigued to where I can now barely move. Medications now either make me sick or do the opposite of what they are supposed to. The best way I can describe it is like a teeter-totter. Acetylcholine is very involved in POTS and Dysautonomia. I need emergency help, because I have been feeling so ill the past few months that I’ve been extremely suicidal, extremely sick, and unable to work for the past several months. Can Dr. Driscoll help me research to find what might counteract this effect that Choline had on my body? It’s the only hope I have at getting my life back. I would go to the emergency room, but there is nothing I think they can do, since they wouldn’t know how to help.
It feels like this is a critical discovery that THERE IS A WAY to permanently decrease these sensitivities. I just need to know how to bring them back a little so that I can be well enough to continue to live. I called Dr. Driscoll’s clinic line and spoke with Darlise, and it would mean the world to me and possibly save my life if Dr. Driscoll can call me or help me.
