Apr 3, 2013 · Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) in Heart Rhythm Conditions

hi Morgan! I have POTS. My story is long but I will try to condense it as much as possible. My problems started in 2009. I had 3 miscarriages in a row. After a bunch of testing i was actually diagnosed with Lupas. I was put on meds for it. After several months i started to have other issues. I was getting dizzy and having a lot of stomach pain. Again, i started going back to the doctor. They couldn’t find anything. Then It just got worse and worse. The dizziness became everyday, I couldn’t eat without vomitting, my legs would shake until i felt like i was going to fall down, chest pain, i was always out of breath, terrible stomach pain,

hi Morgan! I have POTS. My story is long but I will try to condense it as much as possible. My problems started in 2009. I had 3 miscarriages in a row. After a bunch of testing i was actually diagnosed with Lupas. I was put on meds for it. After several months i started to have other issues. I was getting dizzy and having a lot of stomach pain. Again, i started going back to the doctor. They couldn’t find anything. Then It just got worse and worse. The dizziness became everyday, I couldn’t eat without vomitting, my legs would shake until i felt like i was going to fall down, chest pain, i was always out of breath, terrible stomach pain, tingling and pain throughout my body, hot flashes and night sweats. The docs couldn’t figure it out so i was told that it was all in my head and that i had an eating disorder which i knew that i didn’t. i was put on several anti phychotics and anxiety meds and was to told to see a phychiatrist. So i did because i was willing to do anything to feel better. Well i only got worse. Finally one day i was at the doc and down to 90 pounds and i passed out. I was admitted to the hospital and was diagnosed with gastropheresis. My body was not digesting food which is why i couldn;t eat and had all of the stomach pain. Then they sent me to Chicago to see a specialist. After many tests they said that i did not have lupas but had POTs. I was put on new meds and a few months later i became pregnant with twins. I was able to carry them and have healthy babies. Now i have 4 children and the twins are 3 months old. My dizziness and some other issues are coming back and i am looking for some help. I know that i have left a lot out but i figured this was long enough.
