Yes! I am frequently lacking in energy.
I think the testing was a fairly “typical” day. I was surprised a few times by the way the nurses reacted over the course of the test. Several times they brought up the fact that they were surprised I was coping as well I was. During the tilt phase, I did experience the expected anxiety and chest tightness and a couple soundless tears escaped.
Nonetheless, I thought, but did not say, “Are you kidding me, one tilt is nothing, try vacuuming a house”. Or “try holding down a job”. Or try just about anything where you don’t know whether before and after you will have time to rest and recuperate. Whatever is going on, it is cumulative.
At the end of all the testing, the nurse told me she could tell I had been coping with this for many years, and I was so grateful for that.
How long did you live with POTs before you knew what it was?
