MaryJo Posted November 19, 2005 Report Share Posted November 19, 2005 Hi fellow Potsers!,Like all of you I suffer very badly when the weather is really hot, but now I am getting a lot of problems when the weather gets really cold. At the moment it is -5 in London, and I am suffering from greater exhaustion, faintness, and also reynauds. The reynauds is despite wearing thick gloves and generally preparing myself for a trip to the Antartic!!!!!!I don't understand the mechanisms that are at play with POTS and cold weather. In the heat the blood vessels dilate, hence the symptoms, but what is going on with the cold. Surely, if cold leads to constriction of blood vessels then our symptoms should improve? All I know is the problems that I am having, but I don't understand why. I would be really grateful if anyone could explain what is going on.Also, if you have any tips on the Reynauds, and keeping warm.Thanks in advance.Love,MJ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
