Can they missdiag me? They told me I have postural orthostatic tachardia  hve many symptomps but also hip leg pain and I am afraid it is brain tumor

Yes, but: Positional heart rate changes could be related to a myriad of things. Same with leg or hip pain. An md must talk with you face to face. Believe me, as to the brain tumor, every 1st year pathology student thinks he/she has one! not likely cause. ...Read more
