I’ve been diagnosed with POTS/Dysautonomia and the only thing that could have caused it was a bug bite
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I’ll first begin with a summary of myself before I became ill. I am 25, at 19 was a recipient of multiple scholarships to play football, I was the youngest employee at a federal maximum security penitentiary for the department of justice, was and have always been extremely active and in great shape, until last year. I was at a state park here in Kentucky, I was bitten by something. Approximately 5 weeks later I experienced bradycardia, panic attacks, neuropathy, joint pain, depersonalization, migraines, and hallucinations. After racking up 40k in medical bills, I have tested equivocal for Lyme multiple times. Most doctors suspect that has been the route cause of my dysautonomia. This has costed me my life, I am at 13 months being almost completely bed ridden. Lost my job, my lifestyle, Im in the process of filing bankruptcy. All other test come back normal so I have had a very difficult time finding a doctor to help me. I need help. I had stem cell therapy done with no success, I am unable to take a beta blocker due to my bradycardia. So my only option has been increased water intake which doesn’t seem to help much either. I have hearing loss in my left ear as well as a constant ringing. Please I am literally begging for help.
