What to expect
Since I am new at this and have not had any formal testing done, what can I expect when I start going to a specialist?

Are you planning on going to an autonomic specialist like Dr. Grubb or Dr. Julian Stewart, to one of the autonomic clinics for testing like Mayo/CC/Vandy, or trying to find a cardiologist/neurologist at a major teaching hospital who has some knowledge in the field?

If you are going to Mayo/CC/Vandy, these threads are ones I know of that include discussions regarding those hospitals (the CC ones discuss the autonomic testing specifically):

I'm working on gathering some information for another member right now, but please feel free to give me more details on what type of specialist/clinic you are being referred to and what questions you have and I'll get back to you with more targeted answers!

Don't know for sure yet.  Most likely, Vandy.  I will read these feeds first and get back to you on more questions. Thanks
