I had my tilt table test this week… my bp and heart rate apparently weren’t affected but I had a “borderline abnormal” reaction to the nitroglycerin they gave to potentially trigger symptoms (i didn’t pass out but i was legit so unwell i cant understate how terrible it was) …has anyone had similar tilt table results? do y’all think i should take the results at face value and assume i don’t have POTS and look elsewhere for an explanation of my symptoms?

Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)

Glyceryl Trinitrate

    I had borderline results so some doctors say I have pots, others say it’s vasovagal synchope. It doesn’t hurt to keep searching for answers, while keeping pots in mind still!

    I had borderline during one, and full blown symptoms during another. It depends on the day for me. Some days I'm really bad, others I feel ok.
