Meliss446 Posted January 30, 2006 Report Share Posted January 30, 2006 I was doing some research today, and found some interesting things relating to autoimmune POTS and anti-ganglionic antibodies. I read that an autoimmune reaction may be the cause of some peoples POTS. I was wondering if anyone has tested positive for anti-ganglionic antibodies or have an autoimmune disease that is causing the POTS. I also read that this is sometimes treated with a plasma exchange or IVIG. If anybody knows that they have this, or knows anything about it, I would really appreciate the information. Specifically, is there a more specific presentations of symptoms that would indicate an autoimmune reaction? It seems like the symptoms of POTS varies by the physiological cause behind it. Is it difficult to get tested for this, or is it worth it? My POTS was post-viral so I am pretty interested in this. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
