My girlfriend has been sick for at least a month now. It came on almost immediately after she started using some birth control, but we're not sure if that is a coincidence or not.
When she stands, sits up or exerts herself in any way, the symptoms hit her like a sack of bricks. Dizziness, her heart pounds, she's short of breath, extremely dizzy. Some days she can barely walk on her own.
She's had anxiety problems since she was a child, and shes taken medication for a long time, including nyquil and similar products to help her sleep almost every night. I couldn't tell you what medication she takes for anxiety, but I can ask her later if it's crucial to the investigation.
She typically has high blood pressure, but it skyrockets when she stands up. Despite this, the last doctor she visited thinks it's Neurally Mediated Hypotension. This doesn't add up, considering the opposite is happening.
I need to hear from someone that's suffered from this, or a doctor that know's what they're talking about! I care about this girl, I don't want her bedridden for the rest of her life.
