I went to rehab for 6 months and it did help me. I stopped because I could not handle to go to that hospital anymore.

The employees believe my POTS but they don't monitor me besides taking my vitals before and after I start exercising which I find very annoying.

Yes it did help me as well a great deal. I also went for 5-6mos. Toward the end I ended up with a MRSA infection and was hospitalized, so I had to stop. Later when I started back up again because of the issues we were able to discover along the previous rehab journey, we went the route of doing it in the water. I would never go back to land again. I no longer had to take my migraine meds that were exercised indused when I was on land. I was also extremely fortunate and blessed to have had a specific therapist who happened to be trianed in water therapies. She was tremendous. I would try the water first it greatly reduces the POTS symptoms and strengthed my neck and back issues. Also, i had issues with my neck. I found Dr. Denton in MI. He is wonderful and has helped also with both symptoms. I did research on what he did and as well knew others who went to him. You can just google his name Keith Denton to see. I hope this helps with your decision.
