My 17 year old daughter has been ill for about 5 years..just this last year diagnosed with POTS with no relief. We have been to Stanford and Mayo. She also has some strange bone lesions that no one knows what they are or what they are from. If my daughter graduates this year it will be from sheer might!! She is a dancer but is dizzy all of the time nearly. She has had heart rates as low as 39 beats per minute and no one is concerned. The POTS doctors are so backed up that it takes 6 months to see them if you are their patient. No one seems concerned that this is ruining her life. I am a nurse and I have never been so disappointed in medical system as I am now. Any advice is welcome. Gwinette@gmail.com
