Anxiety attacks after having baby


Recommended Posts

Perhaps you can check an anxiety questionnaire to try to become aware of if you're experiencing more cognitive symptoms or physical symptoms.  Childbirth can definitely provoke anxiety.... and POTS.  

When are you experiencing this?  What patterns do you notice?

You can try self-care to prevent anxiety and see if it makes a difference in your symptoms.  You can try self-care to prevent POTS and see if it helps too.

I hope you feel better!

Welcome to the forum.  Have you been diagnosed with POTS?  This symptom alone could have other causes.

I had what I would call adrenaline rushes when my POTS was severe--and for me it was most severe in late pregnancy and post partum.  In post partum in particular I had severe episodes that would wake me up.
