  • What's New in Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia

    I'm new here!

    Hi, my name is Mrshandy0116. I'm here because my husband of 17 years just realized that RA wasn’t just arthritis despite me telling him over and over. Past year I was diagnosed with Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia (heart rate went over 200 bpm), had abnormal stress test, cardiac catheterization revealed elevated pressure on right side of heart, suffered a terrible fall, became anemic requiring 8 treatments of intravenous iron, underwent upper endoscopy and colonoscopy, gastritis, diagnosed with diverticulitis large and small throughout my large intestine and I’m scheduled for cervical fusions at c5-c6 and c6-c7 in February.

    Husband stopped working 11 years ago due to chronic pain secondary to many back surgeries. So with all my health issues I work almost 50 hours per week to support our family with two teenagers still at home. He’s narcissistic (so was my first husband), mentally and verbally abusive to me and our children and could care less about us. Always stressful at home and my work is stressful and demanding (management) but I continue to work everyday while he sits in his recliner watching tv. He calls me lazy and other things because I don’t clean the house like I used to when he had surgery after surgery when the children were toddlers. Not supportive and I’m dreading being off from work to recover from surgery.

    I’m happy to be here and sorry for my rant!!

    Hi, my name is Jace_Nicolas. I've been diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), and I’m soon to see a geneticist to be diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS). I’m aware I have EDS, but I don’t know what type, so that unknown factor is what I’m currently battling.

    Hi, my name is jswanner. I've been diagnosed with PoTS and Gastroparesis on top of multiple other GI and cardiac issues. I’m here to meet others going through the same thing and to learn more about chronic illness.

    Imposter Syndrome

    Most days I feel like I am an imposter in the chronic illness space. My bloods/xrays are not that ba, but bad enough to show somethings wrong. But then why the pain, fatique, brain fog, blackouts, nerve pain, stiffness. If I'm not that bad, why do I feel miserable? The thought that this can get worse is overbearing! I look normal, I'm generally a helpful, talkative, able human being. So I feel like an imposter. I feel like I am not sick enough and don't belong. I have to fight to get heard by my docters, my friends and family don't understand. I'm tired of explaining. I now know that I don't absorb medications, THIS SUCKS! All I want is to be pain free, have energy, sparkle and enjoy my life. I'm in limbo as I can do neither whole heartedly. I am not deathly ill, neither am I capable to have a normal everyday life without the constant reminder this is hard, this is painful, this is exhausting. So yes, I feel like an imposter.

    Don't get me wrong, I am so incredibly greatful for the things I can do and that I am not gravely ill. I am so incredibly thankful that I am not as bad off as a lot of people on this platform. All I want is for my current symptoms to be treated so I can continue with a normal life.

    So yes I have imposter syndrome and I don't know how to overcome that! Not healthy enough to belong, not ill enough either!
