Oh man o.o but yeah. The beta blockers only work depending on the temperature for me. I cant get too warm or it stops working. So i usually stay in 50-75F temperatures and thats when the beta blocker is most effective. So if youre looking for a way for the beta blockers to last longer in the short term before the long term solution medication is brought up, stay in cooler temperatures. It really works. I went to my doctor last week. I mentioned diamox to her and she kinda looked at me odd and then said that she wont let me go on it till ive had the holter monitor test. Theres a back up of people using the holter monitor so im scheduled for feb. at least itll be in winter and ill be able to manage more till then. I havent had a ttt yet because i dont think my doctor knows about pots.
I have another question as a side note. I find that when i wake up in the middle or the night or in the morning that my heart races… But im laying down? Wouldnt pots mean only standing up, your heart races? I find when i sit up in my bed for awhile while drinking some cold water, my heart slows down again. Is that normal in pots? I dont think im waking from a nightmare either or have sleep apena.
Hi Nompancakes, Yes, heat is our enemy for sure! Are you on any antihistamines, BTW? I wonder if they would help some of your problems, including your tachycardia while supine. Let us know? Big hug, Diana
