Smile a diagnosis!!! - September 4th 2010, 03:07 AM

After 5 years of doctors and hospital visits and many wrong diagnosises, i went to a new hospital today with a new doctor and as soon as they walked in the room i got diagnosed. the NP knew what i have right away.


I have Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome.

if anyone knows anything about this, and has suggestions, i'd like to hear them

http://www.dinet.org/ this is a website about it if you'd like to learn about it.

Dysautonomia (also called autonomic) is a medical term that describes abnormal functioning of the autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system is the master regulator of organ function throughout the body. It is involved in the control of heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, respiration, digestion and other functions vital to survival. Dysfunction if the autonomic nervous system can lead to a wide array of life-altering and disabling symptoms.


There is no cure, but there are ways to manage it. I start my new medications tomorrow and will start other things to help within the next week. I am very thrilled to have a diagnosis and I am hoping things get better with medications.

thank you everyone for all your support the past 5 years. I really appreciate it.

I have gone ahead and moved this thread to General Health as it A) fits better here and B) the user asked for it to be moved. If anyone disagrees feel free to PM. =]

I am glad to see you got a diagnosis, and it was interesting to read about since I have never heard of it.

I remember talking to you in chat I think, and I'm so happy they know!
You could totally go on Mystery Diagnosis or something, seriously.
