Hi Becky,

Chronic Fatigue can be a side effect of blood pressure dropping and heart rate dropping, so there is almost certainly a link there.

I know of people who following a postive tilt test done by an sutonomic specialist have had their diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome quashed because it is an effect of the blood pressure/heart rate problem and not 'just' chronic fatigue syndrome.



This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
