First trip to the hospital ever. Hospitals and needles were one of my greatest fears til then (needles still are). EKG and blood tests were done, I was on a blood pressure cuff, pulsox, one ativan, and an IV with one or two bags of saline. I was in the hospital (pediatric ward) from 9am until 2pm when I was discharged simply because the hospital couldn't do much else to help. They basically just told me I was having a panic attack, but it started because of POTS and anxiety didn't kick in until it got more serious and I was on the way to the hospital (which makes sense.)
