Hello everyone! I am 23 years old and was just diagnosed with POTS. This is all very new to me. I have had the symptoms of two years now and everyone kept telling me I had anxiety and panic attacks. I knew it wasn't that. I was never given the tilt table test but when i was hospitalized they diagnosed me over my 3 day stay. I feel weak, tired, moody, irritable, dizzy, sudden butterfly sensations in my stomach, sometimes if my bmp get too high I experience syncope. They have put me on florinef, midrodrine, lopressor and still no luck. I have had to leave work because my episodes were so bad I felt like I was literally dying. I get really sudden headaches with some confusion when my bp drops or gets too high. Sometimes my heart shoots up to 120 when im just watching tv. Basically I was just wanting to see if you other pots patients feel the same way or if i was misdiagnosed. I would appreciate any and all feedback to help me feel at ease or that im not alone. Im still not sure what caused me to get pots. I mean I never had children (miscarriages) not sure if that would be a factor. No big diseases other then this. Im very healthy never get sick, was diagnosed with migraines in 6th grade but other then that i was always active with cheerleading, dance and gymnastics 6 days a week. Please help me with any information you may have thank you

Very Tired of feeling so bad
