POTs HELP ME!

hi
Im 26 yrs old and have some gi motility issues.Ive been having some fatigue etc but then after my plicator implant and removal my issues got worse. Im more faitgued, lightheaded, chest tight, harder time sleeping etc.. a dr diagnosed me with a slight case of POTs. he did a tilt table which showed some bood pooing. he gave me flornef-which was a nightmare. never have I been so ill on medicine. I felt worse-fatigued, terrible leg and arm weakness etc.. with other things to be done I had to go off it. Im so sick of this. what else can on e do. I mean my pots dr is a cardio, so wont he just give me more cardio drugs? the only thing that helps a bit is klonopin in the morning. I dont know why. Im not familiar with all the treaments. is physical therapy good? what kind? antidepressants? the dr says if my gerd wasnt so terrible, the gastroparesis wasnt so bad and the bowels not so raw things would improve some. Imseeing a surgeon on alleviating something here. any advice on all this? I have very poor sleep-10pct REM. and the motility stuff-came after food posioning in '01. I need major help here...
thank sart3
