I saw the Cardiologist on Friday. She was wonderful. She took all my complaints seriously, and we had some pretty good conversation.
She told me I have either Vasovagal Syncope or POTS, and that since the treatment for both is the same, there's no point looking for the actual diagnosis.
The treatment is salt, fluids, and compression socks. So, basically, keep doing what I've been doing, and buy some compression socks.
Apparently beta blockers are no longer being used in the treatment of POTS, as doctors are finding we need higher and higher doses, and once we're taking beta blockers, we can never stop taking them.
10 more days until baby comes!
I'm excited! And nervous!
I can't sleep in any position for more than about 20 minutes. I wake up 47 times per night with dislocations, and because I have to pee. I also have some pretty horrendous lower back pain. Hopefully, once the baby's out, the pain, and dislocations will go back to their previous levels.
