That is weird. I think I had all the same symptoms Sheri just mentioned in the last 10 years or so. I even had to take a beta blocker for awhile but after surgery went off it because my blood pressure kept going really, really low. I've had to have aorta checked due to a problem there--which I have already forgotten how to even describe but had to have the stress test with ultrasound for it. Makes you wonder if it's some kind of linkage with scoliosis at least with some of our anecdotal information here. Janet
