Well I just came back from my electrocardiologist app today and I just got my blood work back. I was told that I have hypothyroidism. I always get my blood checked every month and this month this stuff shows up!!! I have been diganosed with pots and and now this. I haven't been to a rheumy yet because there backed up so I haven't been checked for any other types of autoimmune diseases. Now my question is does anyone know of an autoimmune disease that would cause a person to develop pots and the hypo? Sorry it took so long to get to the question. Thanks! Oh yea I forgot i've been put on bystolic anyone on this? Does it help? Any side effects?

I have both POTS and Hashimoto's. While I believe I may have had POTS prior to developing Hashimoto's (looking back) my POTS symptoms definitely worsened when I developed Hashimoto's. It took a long time for my thyroid to stablize and every time it went off, I would often feel more poorly POTS-wise. As with many other conditions and illnesses, POTS tends to flare up when the other condition/illness does. It can also improve with treatment of the aggravating condition. Hopefully you will find you feel far better once your thyroid is treated. I take synthroid and have done well with it. I feel best with a TSH around 2 or a little lower. I think these days the goal is to keep TSH around 2 for all patients. Fortunately for most people thyroid disease is pretty easy to treat effectively.
