Re: tilt table test



Hi Linsey! I had the tilt table test last week, and i do reccomend it. Its good to finally know whats wrong with you for sure! The ironic part is.....they give you an IV. I was like "Youre not even going to have to tilt me to get me to faint!" But i had an IV, heart monotor electrode things on my chest , a breathing monitor on my finger, and one of those blood pressure things on my arm. They layed me flat down for about an hour like that and then strapped me in and tilted me to standing and i reacted right away...i felt it coming on before i was even upright! ha -- the fastest theyd ever seen! It did suck cuz it brings on that feeling....ugh which i think is the worst feeling in the world. i hate it. I felt kind of crappy for the rest of the day but now i just know how to try to avoid these episodes, so i think its good.
