I have developed some sort of postural orthostatic tachycardic syndrome since my PE. (My heart rate goes way up just with standing up, which in turn makes me feel like I am going to pass out). I spent more time in the hospital for this, than for being diagnosed with the PE. Has anyone else had anything similar. I was put on a medication to not allow my heart rate to go up. It is in a class called a beta-blocker, and it is called Attenolol. My MD says that the PE has somehow damaged my sympathetic nervous system, possubly even on a microscopic level, and that it may or may not go away once the PE is resolved.
