I'm looking to find any others out there that have POTS so we can swap notes. I was diagnosed with POTS about a year and a half ago and have tried tons of meds with no help. Now doing acupuncture to help 'massage' some of the worse symptoms to help me live with/deal with it more.

 

I know it took me years to be properly diagnosed, so there are probably many of you out there suffering and have no idea what you have or what to do. Just feel kind of alone in all this some days, hoping to connect with someone else who has to deal with this POTS stuff day in and day out. Maybe we can help each other.

Hi Lisa,

I was diagnosed with POTS like 6 weeks ago. I knew something was wronge and had seem doctors been to the ER and no one could figure out what was wronge and they just kept telling me i was fine. It wasnt until i brought it up after some research did the doctor look into it. I was right and i do have POTS. however, im in the army and deployed right now... so things are limited as far as how many and what test can be run on me. Its has progressively gotten worse... what have you found that works or a doctor i could email to figure it out?
