Need to eat!


Recommended Posts

In the mornings when my symptoms are bad i feel the urge to drink and eat. If i dont eat or drink for a long period i start to feel out of it - like my blood sugar is low. But i never had this problem before POTS - maybe its the higher amounts of adrenaline taking all the sugar out my body or something?

I agree I feel weak until I eat, especially in the mornings. I was told I had hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) for 17 years and now I know it's POTS. I do feel better after eating sometimes so I know I have a little bit of low blood sugar but my weakness is mostly due to low blood pressure. It's hard though when we don't feel hungry but know we need to eat. I keep crackers and such by my bed and small bottles of gatorade. I try not to eat heavy carb. meals and keep it light. I feel hungry only 2 hours after a meal and have a lot of adrenaline so I agree our metabolism must be up cause of our fast heart rate!
