Positive Or Negative Tilt Table Test result?
Is this a"positive" result? Does it indicate a dysautonomia because HR remained stable in the face of a precipitous BP drop?
3 days ago I had a tilt table test. After 20 minutes standing, I was given sublingual nitroglycerin. Within 5 minutes my BP dropped to 64/37, heart rate stayed around 64. Room was going black, I heard, "Let's lie her down," and was almost immediately back to consciousness, although kind of dopey.
My EP and his office are singularly uncommunicative, not responding to my EHR messages yet after 3 days.
I have been reading and reading, searching for an answer.
I have an ILR, paroxysmal AFib, tachy-brady, labile hypertension which is quite stable in a healthy range, lightheaded most of the time, dizzy with BP drops, some other dysautonomia symptoms, and 3 autoimmune things.
Taking 12.5 mg metoprolol. More sends HR into 40's, 50's otherwise. I exercise at least 6 days/week, mostly swim so I can't fall.
What does this mean?
Thank you for the help I can't get from the doctor!
