Mitochondrial Disease

Never ending exhaustion, I wake up with it and go to bed with it. My POTS symptoms are standard, nothing much different from the group. POTS is mostly secondary to something, my case it's mito. I wish you luck with your testing, knowing what you have and what it's causing helps from the mental side very much. Keep us updated on how you're testing is going and how you're doing.

Lactic acid test? I thought Mito tests required a muscle biopsy

A couple of my specialists believe that I have a mitochondrial disease. Mito can cause dysautonomia. If I do have mito, then my dysautonomia is a symptom of that. The specific things that made my doctors suspect mito are: early onset of symptoms, cyclic vomitting as a child, severity of symptoms, progression, and lack of response to treatment.
