POTS and epilepsy

Recommended Posts

Hi!  I was diagnosed with left temporal lobe epilepsy about five years ago.  I contracted Covid for the first time in July 2022 and again in January 2023. (I have a weak immune system due to an autoimmune disorder.)  Although I wasn't diagnosed with POTS until after my second Covid infection, it's possible I may have been experiencing some POTS symptoms even after my first infection and I didn't fully realize it at the time.  I am writing to ask if anyone has any experience having both epilepsy and POTS?  Prior to having POTS, I only experienced focal aware seizures.  However, after my first Covid infection I started experiencing what my neurologist feels may have been impaired awareness seizures.  I've tried to find information online about the relationship (if any) between POTS and epilepsy but haven't been able to find anything helpful.  Specifically, if you do have epilepsy and POTS, did you notice any changes in your seizures after developing POTS or do you notice any changes when your POTS symptoms are bad?  Thank you!
