Are the results of the Poor Man’s Tilt Table Test leaning towards confirming the diagnosis of Dysautonomia?  Request a referral to see a Dysautonomia specialist in your area and request a tilt table test.  For a list of specialist in your area, click here.
And remember, please talk to your doctor about any medical questions.  I am mom of a patient – not a medical doctor.  This information is here only for information.
And always remember – keep are searching for your answers, your diagnosis and treatment.  Many go through months, if not years, before an accurate diagnosis is made.  Don’t Give Up!
