Finally in 2012, I found the right Dr. who diagnosed me with POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome). POTS affects the "autonomic nervous system". Your autonomic nervous system controls specific body functions automatically, like blood pressure, heart rate, digestion, breathing, body temperature regulation. Mine however doesn't work. I have severe digestive issues. I am nauseous about 99.% of the time, I vomit 5/6 times a week, for hours and hours. I also have severe blood pressure issues.
My cardiologist has referred me to the MAYO clinic and I need financial help getting there!!! I need a chance to regain my life back, before I was sick. The quality of my life has diminished drastically. I have some days that I cant even get out of bed because I am so sick. I live in Portland, Oregon. The POTS clinic is located in Rochester,MN.
Please help!!! I thank you all in advance for all your help and support.
