Hi, I would welcome your opinion I'm new here.
I'm 51 now (male)and my symptoms started after a hectic day gardening 4 years ago.
After a few hours digging out a tree root I sat with a cup of tea. When I stood back up I experienced the following.
Spots in my eyes, hearing loss (like someone was clasping their hands over my ears on and off) , pressure in my eyes, pain in my neck shoulders and head. These things got worse the more I walked. But went when I sat down. One day I was having to sit for 4 hours before I returned to normal. After these 'attacks' i'd be very tired.
I now have this whenever I exhort myself sometimes it lasts for 10 mins others maybe an hour?
I had a reveal fitted it revealed my heart raced at these times but nothing more. I had a tilt table test and they gave me a drug to dilate my veins but I really needed to walk when they raised the table because I only experienced POTS as I walked across the car park on my way home after being told all was normal .
I now experience face flushes night sweats IBSd and c and just wonder if I have POTS? I so need to put a label on it and would love a diagnosis but ive been discharged from cardio My GP then sent me for hormonal tests which drew a blank. I feel abandoned now and just have to endure this?
your thoughts please.
