ChadK Posted September 3, 2005 Report Share Posted September 3, 2005 When I lay down my heart rate is sometimes about 56 , is that ok? When I get up it rises higher to about 112. I do think that I have POTS and I know it will not kill you but it still gives me anxiety attacks when my heart rate rises so much , does anyone else have anxiety with this. I am starting to get depressed because up until about 2 weeks ago my life was awesome and now I have to plan everything on if my heart rate is ok. I guess the main question I have is , is it normal when you are at rest with POTS for your heart rate to be between 55 and 65 and then on standing it rises. My blood pressure stays around 118/80 so BP has not been a prob. I have noticed a few times it has shot up to about 130/85 which is not to high but high for me cause I think my BP is low naturally. Can anyone please tell me some home remedies to ease some of the discomferts and anxiety that come along with POTS. What really makes me mad every doc I go to sais I am fine and I even saw someone who really knows POTS in a leading heart hospital so I mean what is the deal. Sorry to ramble but have been up all night with anxiety and I am depressed over it. Aldo one more thing, does anyone elses eyes get real dry , and sometimes your mouth? Also how come some days I feal ok and some days I feal like crap , and sometimes my feet are freezing cold and other days they are fine . ERRRRR One more thing I promiseeeeeeee. I have not been hardly eating the past week , I pick my fiancee sais and she is trying so hard to put up with me lol but it gets hard as I am sure you all know, do you guys think I could drink Ensure Plus or would that make me worse , I think part of my not eating is worrying if I eat something that makes this worse and then the other is Anxiety I feal like stomach is in knots all the time.Hope to hear from ya soon and I am still praying for all of you.
