Hi I forgot to ask about this last time. I have multiple untreated ASDs and suffer from severe orthostatic hypotension or maybe even POTS. I was wondering if shunting ASDs could affect my blood pressure?
The other thing I wanted to ask was when my pressure and heart rate goes up at all I get pain and pressure in my neck veins, could this be related and do I need to mention it to cardiologist. I also take about 10 mins of 40% oxygen for chronic fatigue syndrome from an oxygen converter and this seems to make the neck vein thing worse? What's the significants?
