Have read an article over the weekend about something called P.O.T.S. Having now looked it up and read about symptoms, I found its common for this to cause sufferers problems when standing in queues, something I have had real problem with to a point of paramedics being called a few times in recent months. My legs feel like they won't support me, I feel really hot and wobbly and in particular it feels like my heart is pounding out of control. After that I get pins and needles in my legs.
One paramedic took me off to hospital with wildly fluctuating pulse rate but nothing was found at hospital. Having read about P.O.T.S. I have tested my pulse rate today and the first test, my heart rate climbed steadily over half hour period from 64 lying down to 124 standing and I do mean just standing...not exercising or walking about.
Second test went from 62 lying down to 139 standing after half hour. Both tests were over a hundred within a couple of minutes standing, straight off but I wanted to test longer to see if readings remained high.
I am not on Levo at the mo' for other tests to be done but does this sound like something purely down to the Hashimoto's or could this be yet another additional problem like P.O.T.S.
I can't go to my doctor's again and query me having something else because he really will think I'm a hypochondriac , so please tell me this can be down to Hashi's instead.
Thanks for reading.
