    I'm supposed to get a tilt table test tomorrow & am flying Thursday to spend 1st xmas with grandkids in years. I don't want to screw up this trip, but keep getting reassurance that there aren't side effects. Then I saw on a 2002 post on here 1 person say bedridden for 3 days & another say side effects for months but didn't see any more on it. Reason for test: to dx why my heart sometimes has a delayed beat followed by a more powerful beat, resulting in shortness of breath, etc., when noticed in tests BP went down instead of up in exercise. Has ANYONE HAD SIDE EFFECTS from the tilt table test?

    Sorry you didn't get any helpful advice on this topic and your question.
    I have not had that test, so I felt I couldn't guess.
    Though I would not be surprised if people had recovery time from it, some of us longer than others,......

    Now, I wonder if you had the test or not.

    I could not guess if you needed for some important reason, to not wait, and to have it now for your health, or if it is okay for your particular health, to delay that test.
    I would have delayed it, if it was not harmful to me to do so.

    Anyway, thinking of you, and hoping you made the right decision for you,
    and hope you manage to enjoy your trip!!
