MJ! This is GREAT! Now having said that, can you pretty please watch the video “Is it POTS or Dysautonomia”? One thing that can EASILY happen is that doctors (cardiologists are known for this because they are, well, cardiologists) will diagnose POTS, but forget about the other symptoms of autonomic dysfunction we likely have. Try not to let them pigeon-hole you like that, OK? And YES, Heavens, I think most of us can even wake up at night, heart racing, gasping for breath for no “obvious” reason. And I watched my heart rate change by 30-50 bpms just sitting quietly and watching it! Crazy, huh? I showed the doctor’s technician, who was floored “(“what on earth could be WRONG with you”), but the doctor called it “anxiety”. Really? After 46 years with no “anxiety”, suddenly I get a virus and have “anxiety”, tachycardia, nausea, IBS, difficulty breathing, difficulty standing, a tremor, blah, blah, blah? Anxiety? Really? Anywho, MJ, GREAT news, but don’t let them minimize your other symptoms, OK? And congrats on the validation. It’s about time, don’t you think? 🙂 Diana
