Re: Questions about the Tilt Table test

From: Lorraine


Hi, Shirley. Thanks so much for responding.

It's comforting to hear that there are docs out there who don't just want to give you a prescription and send you home.

Also comforting to hear that it's uncommon to lose complete control during the T-T test. I feel silly even worrying about that, but I do.

To answer your question, yes, I will be seeing a cardiologist. I just can't find one who will take me without a referrral from another doctor. So I'll have to go see a GP and get him to refer me to a cardiologist.
