Are you frustrated or afraid to go to the ER? I am on both accounts.
Friday evening ER visit with a brand new diagnosis…what could go wrong?
With a heart rate over 135 while sitting in a recliner, the cardiac nurse practitioner suggested a trip to the ER. With a recent POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) diagnosis, my daughter was struggling to walk to the bathroom but the elevated heart rate while sitting was new. And scary. Made scarier by the NP’s insistence on going to the ER immediately!
