Hey Nikigrl--you and I had a dialogue on this before...


I think your doctor needs to answer your concerns about DHEA levels and symptoms. I don't think anyone can explain your lab results/symptoms on the internet.

Unfortunately there are not a lot of "solid answers" for POTS at this time.

Hang in there,
