Gena Posted May 3, 2006 Report Share Posted May 3, 2006 Let me try to explain my question further...For those who had to give up work altogether or move into a part-time job, was it because you physically could not sit or stand all day or focus or other physical/mental reasons?Or was it due to the stress of the job itself causing your symptoms to flare up to a point where you decided it was not worth it to push yourself and cause flare ups?The reason I ask is b/c I work full-time and can function fairly normally most of the time (although I struggle with dysautonomia on a daily basis. However, I don't get too dizzy or faint - which would definitely prevent me from working!My POTS flares up when my job stress gets unbearable. During those flare ups there may be weeks or months at a time that I don't sleep, have arrhythmias, my BP is rock bottom, have adrenaline rushes, etc. - but I still am able to perform in my job, albeit at a much lower level than I'd like!For those who had to give up your job, did you find that it eased your symptoms / flare ups at all after you quit?Thanks for your feedback.
