I’m no Dr., but I’m becoming educated on POTs and dysautonomia. I did have a positive TTT, my heart rate increased dramatically, but on that day my blood pressure didn’t drop significantly. I told the Dr that I happened to be having a “good” day that day and I’m sure on a different day he would see BP drop. Plus I had a different U of M Dr. Clearly track how my BP drops upon standing on another day (not to mention I take my own BP and see that it’s dangerously low most of the time. We all know we have good days and bad, with a variety of different symptoms on different days. It only makes sense with the dysfunction of our vital organs that you could get different TTT results on different days.
Next week a Dr wants to conduct a TTT on me while on all my drugs: beta blocker, florinef and Savella.
Anyone know why he wants to test me while on my drugs? I hope he’s not going to try to get a negative and tell me I don’t have POTs, because I know that’s not true.
