Thank you once again for your reply and I agree it is difficult to get to grips with understanding fully (lol as mud)…..
I can confirm that I had my TTT and it was dreadful, I would never have believed it could make you feel so ill or react so badly.
The length of time I should have been tilted to the 70 degree angle was 45 mins, I didn’t last much past ten minutes where I became very short of breath, sick and very hot, I felt that I would have passed out or even worse that my heart would stop, they confirmed that they had captured the event but did not say what the event was!
All I can confirm is that the lady monitoring the ECG was a senior echo cardiographer in the heart and lung centre, and she said that she expected me to pass out way before the time that I had begged to be lowered. Also she said that the cardiologist would be reviewing the results that same day or on Monday (today), and would contact me regarding the results, I informed her that I had an appointment in December with the cardiologist and wouldn’t I have to wait until then for the results, to which she said oh no…. he would look at the results and would be contacting me early this week…..
So I have to wait…..
Can I ask another very important question…. do people who have PoTS have abnormal events recorded on ECG’s during the TTT?
