LilySnick12 Posted March 19, 2007 Report Share Posted March 19, 2007 I was just wondering if anyone else with POTS has any of the following, or if its just me? (Please bear with me as its a long list and I may forget some things) Also wondering if there are any ideas into what some of these are or what causes them? (I know some are from the POTS).I have had my gallbladder and appendix out (with an infection after surgery that went untreated because "I didn't know what I was talking about. Redness, etc. is common) , a rib-resection, chronic abdominal pain (unknown cause), iron deficiancy anemia, chiari I malformation, trouble breaking down milk sugars (huh?), migraines, periods that are very painful and never end (my last one was 3 months straight and only stopped a week ago), food allergies, medicine allergies, ovarian cysts, trouble absorbing vitamin D, excerise intolerance, asthma, dizziness, chronic fatigue, seizures (unknown cause and type- they started 2 months ago), back/neck/shoulder problems (muscles are too tight and knotted even with massage therapy), low resistance to germs (I catch EVERYTHING), lower back pain, fluctuating appetite (some days I'm very hungry and some I can't stand to be around food), sleep trouble, nausea, brusing/breaking blood vessels easily, tiredness, no stamina, memory trouble, "brain fog", low urine output (2-3 times a day), "no" immune system (my dr. says the = of a chemo patient :0 !) ugh... the list goes on... I'll stop posting symptoms now since I'm actually having brain fog. Lol. I do feel the need to mention that I'm not very old to have POTS (I'm not quite 18), and was ALSO wondering if anyone had any advice with how to deal with the school. (Mine thinks I'm "not sick, and I just keep making up things" and has never heard of POTS. They also think that I don't "deserve to graduate, since I haven't had to work as hard as the other students"!!!!! UGH! Lol. That's because I've had to work HARDER! Ha ha. I'm on homebound and it's tough. I'm basically self taught and the "teachers" are no help...)Anyway... I'm rambling so I guess I'll stop writing and wait for the replies that I'm sure will be very interesting. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
