My teeth chatter, I feel my heart plummet and I go into breathing convulsions staying stiff and unable to move my arms and legs. After the episode I can hear and understand what is going on around me but can not communicate back. Everything becomes mentally simpler for me, I do not have complex thoughts. When I am able to open my eyes, I can barely look at faces for some reason. When people ask me questions I just look at them because I can't answer. I have also been poked with a needle in this state, amongst other forms and I couldn't move. I am wondering what this could be. My POTS has not gone away and it has been 6 years. My doctor said it should be gone by now. We have ordered a loop recorder to monitor my heart but I am waiting for health insurance. Also I had "febreal seizures" as a child which could have been RAS. I turned blue and the whole bit! Not sure if this helped but any insight would be great!
