This had been a weird rollercoaster that I seem to be stuck on. I recently got my IGeneX results back and I’m positive for IgM bands 23 and 41. I’m really at the start of the journey, only having found a LLD about two months ago, and I just started Valtrex about a week ago. Has anyone had complications by developing POTS with killing off everything that’s been happily inhabiting your body for awhile? I’m miserable, I’ve been prescribed Cortef to regulate my heart rate but even just getting up to go to the bathroom makes my pulse race.
Hi Mookie - welcome to the forum.
I believe those two bands means CDC positive.
I have pots - it’s lingering - but my heart rate isn’t as high as it used to be when I stand from sitting.
Im trying to remember - I think It used to go up to 130 bpm.
Now it often just goes to 100 to 105 bpm.
(But repeated ups and downs - like when I’m vacuuming and bending down to pick up stuff off the floor - it will go to 130 bpm)
I have lost most of my symptoms and am hoping this one goes too.
