Positive test result and I'm terrified! Has anyone here failed the tilt table test testing positive?

've been undergoing all sorts of testing since January 13 to find out why I am so dizzy/lightheaded. GP has sent me to three specialists at the same time, a Nero-otologist, cardiologist, and a Gastrow intestinal doctor as he was not sure where the dizziness was coming from. With Nero I have a VNG and ECOG test next Wednesday the 8th and I have an endoscopy scheduled with Gastro on the 17th... But yesterday with the cardiologist I had a tilt table test... And I tested positive! I am terrified! My follow-up appointment with cardiology isn't until the 15th, after the test at the hospital they told me I was positive because my blood pressure and my heart rate dropped dramatically when they gave me nitroglycerin at 70° tilt... I Did not pass out... I have never passed out... but I've never felt so ill in my life I thought I would die! I see posted all over here that people have been through cardiology testing to rule out that as a cause, so has anyone of you failed the tilt table test or gotten a positive result from it? I did fine the first part of the test where they do it without any medicine ... was not dizzy or lightheaded at all... But the second part of the test where they give you the nitroglycerin certainly had a very bad effect on me... Now I do not know if I should keep my appointment the 8th with the Nuero... But my ears are still ringing and full so I still feel that is where my dizziness is coming from... But with this positive test on the tilt table I am just terrified...
