Lisa ~ My brother is hospitalized with the same exact scenario as you, in fact this happened to him 2 years ago & they worked him up for almost 2 months and diagnosed him with POTS. They put him on beta blockers too...started with lopressor and switched to topranol. He was pretty much okay on the meds but in the evening would get the bad headaches and would have to lay down. However....the other day he started with the unncontrollable tremors and a severe headache and cannot sit or standup without severe dizziness or passing out. He is back in the hospital since yesterday and being worked up for a condition called Phenochromocytoma ( a tumor on the adrenal gland). They ran the tests and have put him on Catapress and Libiterol. They feel he may have a problem with his Autonomic nervous system which is basically what POTS is considered.

I would appreciate any info you can share with me in regard to your treatment since it sounds so similar to what my brother is going through.
I hope that they find a way to get you back to a good quality of life....if it is any help once the meds were regulated my brother did well until 3 days ago. I will search to see where exactly the Mayo clinic is...I believe it's in Ohio if I'm not mistaken. good luck & I look forward to your future posts....Goody :wave:
