Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome is main diagnosis to date. Patient has postural orthostatic tachycardia but she needs to have a tilt table to discover if this correct. Her life has changed from an outgoing child who attends school daily and had a social life with a large group of friends. She had been doing ballet since the age of 3 years and was at grade 4 on the Celtic harp. She now rarely leaves her bedroom or the house and has very little social life, most of the time none and she no longer does any of her after school activities. She finds taking a hot shower or bath makes her feel worse and is sensitive to light and heat. She loved reading and can no longer concentrate to read. She has always excelled in school but now does not have the physical or mental energy for it. Seek advice details: We have been back and forth to the doctors for the past 3 years and 5 months ago finally managed to see a specialist in pediatrics who diagnosed myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome. There is no treatment for this. Upon internal review the company judged relevant to code POTS which was reported by the HA in their narrative but not coded. The patient''s outcome was reported as Not Recovered/Not Resolved.
