my doctor has told me the cause of my symptoms is "probably POTS" but is waiting for a review from cardiology. I'm worried that unless cardiology have something significant to say, she won't contact me again for a formal POTS diagnosis. how can I ensure I get one?

Based on the replies, you can ensure a formal POTS diagnosis by advocating for yourself and insisting on further testing. You could ask for a referral to a cardiologist or neurologist who specializes in POTS. Requesting specific tests such as a tilt table test, autonomic testing, ECG, or Holter Monitor could also help confirm the diagnosis. Keeping detailed notes of your symptoms and how they interfere with your daily life may also be beneficial when discussing your condition with your doctor.
