Hi dee, We, are filling this site with our posts. Have you looked on the NDRF site? Look up POTS and see if that fits your symptoms.Also I have read that some people experience symptoms after eating a heavy meal.....for those people it is recommended to eat several small meals. Most doctors are not familiar with dysautonomia and don't have a clue on what to test for. How often do your symptoms occur? How are you doing on the beta blocker? I know what you are going through. Hang in there and let me know what you think about the description for POTS. I think you will find the NDRF site informative and helpful. You might want to post on that site also.

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.
