Tilt table in uk

From: Ju (


Thought this deserved a seperate article! I live in England and have struggled to be allowed to have a tilt table test. i was told that many doctors here dont support them. instead i was discharged and told to go back to my consultant if my condition worsened. they said id grow out of it. However while my parents were on holiday this summer i collapsed several times. I was re-referred and finally my doc has agreed to a tilt table test. i have one next weds. so if you are in the UK and having the same problem as me dont give up. They are available on the nhs and you are entitled to one. heres hoping for a positive diagnosis at last
