Re: Rapid increase in heart rate and shortness of breath when climbing stairs

Sampoo...i have the exact same symptoms that you have...and i got all of them a year after my second baby was born...i think it has something to do with the vagus nerve...it seems when my vagus nerve is irritated...i get symptoms of POTS...and it's a lot worse before my period...
why the vagus nerve is irritated...could be that hormones where keeping it relaxed...and after the birth of my baby and when i stopped nursing..symptoms got a lot worse...cause those hormones aren't keeping my nerves relaxed anymore...
hope this helps
