“I was very lucky to be a patient of the clinic. I can’t tell you how much better I feel. I really feel like I am on the journey towards wellness again!”
Jesse, nearly bedridden, was suffering from POTS. In December of 2017, she became a patient and turned her life around. She emailed us at POTS Care three months later with an update.
Update July 2018:
Hi all! Just wanted to check in and let you know that I’m feeling absolutely AMAZING as I continue to heal. Thank you for setting me on this path! Hope you’re all well! 💙
I was introduced to the Driscoll Theory book in 2012, prior to this I was almost completely bedridden, I wasn’t able to stand or walk. After reading the Driscoll Theory I learned I was a POTS patient that did not feel good in any position. Until now, I was being treated with traditional treatments such as beta blockers, salt, and compression socks. However, I was becoming worse and worse and it became very disheartening to me. After begging my doctor at the time to allow me to try Diamox, she finally agreed. Within 3 days I was able to stand and walk again, eventually able to go back to work!! Unfortunately, sometime later a well-meaning doctor decided it was time for me to come off the Diamox and focus on other symptoms of suspected MCAS. However, I soon realized this was bad advice and I needed to see Dr. Driscoll herself.
I am happy to say I became a patient of POTS Care in December 2017 since then I have noticed my head, neck, shoulder pain, and tachycardia have all improved dramatically!! I am able to do Pilates, which I wasn’t able to do prior to coming to the clinic. I went on a walk this morning with my husband in the fog, I have not been able to do this in a very long time, I feel like I have gotten my life back!!
