Pots Sydrome Question
I have been suffering with POTS for a number of years after diagnosis of everything from fibromyalgia to anxiety disorders.. Anyway, just wondering, my Pots symptoms seem to run in cycles, better then awful a few days, then better. Anyway, I am going though a few days of terrible and wonder a couple of things from those of you diagnosed with POTS. My bp is always around 105/68 with a pulse of 60-70 sitting, I then stand up and boom 78/56 pulse 129, well I took it last night a number of times while lying down, and it was about 105/56 with a pulse of 42. Its crazy to me that my heart is only around 40 while resting/sleeping then jumps to 130 by simply standing.
I have just been trying the high salt, lots fluids, now compression pants (not a significant help) because I don't want to go on Florinef. Is there anybody out there that has comments that does use Florinef- has it helped you? Side effects? It scares the crap out of me reading the side effects, tells you to get a medical ID bracelet...plus your body becomes addicted to it after three weeks and is hard to wean off of according to a doctor friend and literature. Really like to hear from others on this.
Thank you so much,
