Good luck and I hope this helps.
I just had an ablation done on my heart (27 y/o) and afterwards and currently seem to be exhibiting some charecteristics of POTS and it stinks! When I get up my heart races and then eventually returns to normal but it makes me feel tired, dizzy and lightheaded. I have gone through all of your same thought patterns, how am I going to keep my job, what will I do if I can't and loose my insurance, how am I going to make a living.
If your doctor isn't very familiar with POTS you should get a 2nd opinion. They have told me to increase my salt and fluid intake. Also, try to get up a slowly when you do. This should minimize so of the blood rushes. Also, I would ask your doctor to put you on a 24 hour monitor so you can see what is happening with your heart.
The other thing is anxiety. I know that I am making things probably worse by the amount of worry that I am carrying. So I am working at just focusing on a day at a time. Thinking I will be disabled the rest of my life just throws me into a bigger rut that I don't need right now. So, try to remain in the present and battle through each day.
Let us know how it is going!
I would check with my state about medicaid insurance. You will have to go to city hospitals for your treatment. But, if you are not working and/or have a low income. You should be able to recieve medicaid.
If you are worried about insurance this may be a avenue you can take. Call Medicaid at 1-800-392-2161 and see if you can recieve benifits. They pay for your doctors, hospital and medications as a part of the service.
Good Luck To You,
