I have been waiting for 6 months to try life without attenelol to control my tacchycardia that started after a PE in Sept.-Oct. 2007. I also waited until a month after my partial thyroidectomy- I do not have cancer, but an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto's thyroiditis. After 4 days without it, I couldn't take it anymore -the dizziness, the palpitations was all coming back. My resting HR is higher without it, and going from lying flat to standing makes my HR go up 30-60 BPM. From what I have read, I fit the description for POTS- postural orthostatic tacchycardic syndrome. The test needed to diagnose it is called a tilt table test. My pcp says that "the system" prevents him from ordoring the test himself- that I would have to do a 30 day event monitor, then they would put me on the same medication I am on now. Why can't they just diagnose the problem? I have had some very important dignosis missed (shattered fibula fracture, PE) -I don't want to miss something, and lose my life to pay for someone elses mistake -I have 3 kids and a husband to raise! What should I do?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
