Another day, another trip to the hospital, another procedure…the fun never ends. Being a “professional patient” helps but it’s still painful & scary!

New meds

I got diagnosed with POTS after having Covid last year and after trying a beta blocker that didn’t help much my doctor recommended ivabradine instead. I read up on it and it’s sounds like it has some scary side effects…does anyone have experience with this drug? #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome

My CCI has been freaking me out lately. My neck has been cracking a lot lately. I can feel my cervical vertebrae sliding in and out of place. If I massage the back of my neck I get a raging headache. I looked up to look at the stars the other night and got very dizzy and gave myself a headache. Last night, I tilted my head up to kiss my husband and had the same thing happen.

I wear my Aspen collar twice a day and when I'm a passenger. I wear my soft collar when I drive.

Is PT worth the time, expense and effort? My insurance is awesome so that isn't an issue at least.

I can't tell if I should be genuinely concerned or if I'm just panicking.

I really hope all of this makes sense. Thanks for reading. #HEDS #CCI
