So I Guess You Saw Me on AOL’s Front Page This Morning, Huh?

I’m just taking a wild guess as to why I had an uncharacteristically ENORMOUS influx of visitors today. I had no idea the Everyday Health piece would be there today, but there you go!

One thought on “So I Guess You Saw Me on AOL’s Front Page This Morning, Huh?

    Hello,
    Thanks to this article I may have found what has been bothering me for over 14 years. See I have always had a heart problem, rare benign pvc’s, pac’s and slight tachycardia. I’ve been hooked to monitors, had ekgs, stress tests, blood work, and all led to doctors saying that what I have will just be something I need to live with. Well, that’s fine for them and my family but what I am experiencing is real and no one can seem to give me a direct answer as to why I have them. So jumping ahead to your article. Whenever someone post something about a heart problem with tachycardia, I like to read it in case I find something similar to me. I looked up POTS and can relate to it almost 100%! My heart rate always elevates when I stand and I get tired standing most of the time. I feel fatigued, dizzy, sore, etc. Most doctors also say my PVC’s are more bothered by anxiety but I always tell them I have anxiety because of PVC’s. I’ve never done a tilt test and never before heard of POTS. I told my family I should mention POTS to my doctor but they think I am being paranoid and that the doctors would have found it. I know that there isn’t a ‘cure’ for POTS but finally linking a name with what I am experiencing would be WONDERFUL! It would help me with benefits in the future, because we’ve all been through that “well she doesn’t look sick” work experience.
    Thank you for posting this article. Even if the doctors rule out POTS, it gives me motivation to never give up.
