I have been diagnosed with POTS/autonomic neuropathy. I have had issues with kidney stones for the past 7 years. Both of my kidneys have numerous stones and plaquing of the calcium oxalate inside the kidneys as well, which is something I like to watch. But yes, I can say with certainty that the two conditions are related, despite no solid evidence that I have come across. Let me know if you have any questions.
Just a quick note to say hiHi Kathy, I just read your new post on the forum. I am glad that you went to DR Adams, I am interrested to know what kind of blood work and other testing did he have you do, also do you have the name of this other UM Dr. that he is talking about?? I just went to see him and he thinks I might have a CSF leak and referresd me to a D at Um to have an epidural blood patch done, I will let you know how that goes for me.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi, I went to see DR David Adams about a month ago and was very impressed with him. He spent over an hour with me, He ordered some autonomic tests( that I am still fighting with the insurance to pay for )and he sent me to a neuphrologist to get a hypertension evaluation, (which I am going this coming Friday.) He did put me on pyridostigm and I am feeling a little better, I will be seeing him again after all tests have been done. I loved Dr Adams,!!! he takes his time with you, he explains evreything very well and calls you back if you need to talk to him.
You might want to try him if things don't go welll with Chizner. Let me know how it goes.
