Hey there! Does anyone know if POTS affects or can affect the thyroid? I just found out yesterday from a blood test that my (hormone level, I think) was on the high side, but I've never been called on having any problems with it, and I was just wondering if that might be normal for a POTSy? I'm just curious, because I don't remember reading anything about it, but it seems like it could be related like other hormones and whatnot. Thanks!!!

I've noticed that there are more than a few of us with autoimmune thyroiditis. Actually this is not uncommon in the general population--I think I have read that 10% of all women will develop a thyroid problem. I have had Hashimoto's for years. Is it your TSH that is elevated? That would indicate that you are thyroid deficient. Please talk to your doctor and see an endocrinologist if possible.
