Guest veryblue Posted May 3, 2004 Report Share Posted May 3, 2004 Hello...I was wondering if any of you guys also have a fast heart rate when laying down as well as when upright? I know my poor ticker pounds away all day and all night long...laying down, standing up, dancing, showering...it never slows without the help of a beta blocker. Would I have POTS even if t is fast laying down? I am under the impression that with POTS your fast heart rate is due to veins in your legs that dont compensate to the gravatational stress of the upright posisition...why would ones heart be beating fast sitting of laying if that is the case. Also the hair on my legs seems not to be growing as fast as it used to. Is this from the POTS? Also my case (which still is undiagonsed at the time) seems to be mild...I still exercise, drive, stay up all night and go to school ealry in the morning, and stand up all day long with no problem. (My BP runs low however...112/75 without a beta blocker and as low as 95/60 with one) Does that mean that I have a better chance of it going away? Sorry for all the ?s but I'm scared...this just hit me overnight one day with no warning. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
