: Dear Doctor RPS,
  Thank you for the information.  I recently went to Vanderbilt University to participate in a research protocol where they confirmed I have orthostatic intollerance syndrome (Dr. Robertson does not like to call it POTS for some reason).  My heart rates even after an ablation still consistantly rise 40 or more beats from lying to standing.  The ablation was done by UofM who thought I had inappropriate sinus tachycardia.  
  I now see a Dr. Karas at the Ohio Medical College who is wonderful and very compasionate in helping me deal with this disorder.  The problem I still have is that I still do not feel healty but I assume this has something to do with BP and heart rate variations during the day.  The other current finding are above normal levels of nonephenerine (sorry can't spell).   It is very easy to become neurotic with this syndrome due to the bizarre symptoms but I try and keep a positive attitude.
  The interesting thing about pots is that the BP never drops and remains normal with the high heart rates unlike other autonomic disorders.  
  I am just trying to get other doctors ideas about this disorder.  Thanks for the help, I really appreciate your work at this site.
  Dorothy
