Soon I am having my tilt table test and I’m very nervous about it. I have been advised on my community on Twitter to make sure I don’t wear compression 2 days before, and pretty much pretend I don’t know what pots is and act as if I know nothing about what helps me to make sure I’m at my worst. I also will have to stop taking my anti depressant for 2 days before and that’s going to feel horrible and I am not looking forward to that.
I am also nervous because I am on the spectrum and trying to communicate what I’m feeling in general is very difficult, but doing it while feeling sick and dizzy is going to be severely difficult.
I am worried I won’t be able to communicate the way I need to for them to get the answers they need/want from me to get an accurate response.
I’ve spent a year reporting tachycardia with doctors ignoring me and they are finally listening and I want to make sure this test is as accurate as possible.
What was your tilt table test like for you? Can anyone run through what the experience was like/how it went? #tilttabletest
