anyone got postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome?

Postby Wackers34 » Sun Nov 03, 2013 7:29 pm

This might explain some of my heart racing and tremor problems...does anyone else suffer from low blood pressure and quick heartbeat when standing from sitting?

I get really bad dizziness also and feeling faint all the time

Im going to mention to doc when I next see them as its a symptom Im noticing more and more...relaxation techniques are not working...I thought it might be anxiety, but im not so sure...Its interesting because on the medical website I looked on it said POTS symptoms can be helped by drinking two glasses of water - I did this today and my heart rate slowed down (did this before I knew that you should do this!)

Symptoms are pretty much same as fibro, but im wondering if its something that can go hand in hand with fibro? If so it can be treated and may make a lot of symptoms disappear:

Poor memory
Poor concentration
Sense of anxiety
Difficulty with exercise
Purple discoloured feet Bowel problems
Poor sleep
Visual disturbances
Neck/shoulder pain
