calypso Posted July 1, 2004 Report Share Posted July 1, 2004 I just cannot stop losing weight and especially losing muscle mass since POTS started. I am really at a loss as to what I should do. I am still breastfeeding my daughter and wanted to continue until she is 1 year old, but she is now 7 months and I feel like I may have to stop. I know most of you aren't breastfeeding and dealing with POTS at the same time, but does anyone agree that breastfeeding, on top of having POTS, could cause this much weight loss? I feel like something is being missed in my case. I have been so short of breath since I had my daughter, and yes, I definitely have POTS symptoms, but so few of you seem to be short of breath AND losing tons of weight/muscle. I swear I have lost about a third of my muscle mass and I now weigh what I did in sixth grade (110, down from my prepregnancy weight of 122).Why do I keep doubting the POTS diagnosis? Am I being irrational? Amy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
