Breathing in deep

Recommended Posts

When I'm really light headed, I find if I want some tiny relief I just breath in really deep and hold it.

I assume its from increased pressure pushing blood upwards or something?

I am not sure what the mechanism is behind it but I also improve from taking slow, deep breaths when I am in a hyper-POTS flare. I personally believe that it helps to calm down as well as help oxygenation.
