I had a tilt table test last week. The doctor was testing for POTS. I passed the test which means I don't have POTS. However, I had a very bad reaction to the tilt table test. When they stood me up I felt very dizzy, weak, and sick the entire time which seemed to go on forever. When they laid me back down, I felt like my head was lower than the rest of my body, but it wasn't. I felt very disoriented equilibriumwise. When the tech wanted me to sit up I didn't know if I could make it, but I was able to do so. When she wanted me to stand up, I couldn't. I was so dizzy, and weak, and very unstable. I had to hang onto nearby objects. What made matters worse is the tech is yelling at me to stand and yelling at me when I'm hanging on to objects that had wheels underneath. Yet, she offered me no stable objects or herself as an aid. She continued to yell at me to stand unsupported which I couldn't. After this went on for awhile she concluded that I needed a wheelchair but then had the chair too far away for me to get into. They then took me to the outpatient floor to a bed. Initially they were expecting me to get up and immediately leave on my own accord. The outpatient nurse was kind, thank goodness. She gave me some pop to drink and some food. I felt a little better, but not enough. I also had tingling in my feet, legs, and arms, but I wasn't hyperventilating. In fact, my pulse was as low as it usually is. It took about a good hour before I was fully recovered. Another interesting fact was I had a migraine that day. I had woken up with a headache and it had increased throughout the day. It was approaching migraine level right before the test. Immediately after the test was done my headache was completely gone. I don't know what to make of this -- do I have some neurological problem? My doctor's nurse offerred no explanation or help with this. What have been other people's experiences with the tilt table test? What was the doctor testing for when he/she ordered it? What diagnoses have you received as a result of this test and what did they do for you?
