  4. Hi Everyone, Thanks to those who have participated in my survey! Your willingness to share your personal information has been really helpful. As for sharing the results with you, I will if I can. There are graphs and such. Right now it is looking like there is no linear relationship between and of my independent variables (medications, salt, and exercise) and my dependent variable (recovery from pots). There are many reasons for this. I never meant for this to turn into anything more then a simple survey. Sorry for the confusion, or whatever sparked the heated discussion that followed. Thanks Again, Kat
  5. I have been having this pain for a long time now too and no one has been able to explain it to me, so thanks to all of you! I think I have learned more about my symptoms and how to treat them here than from any doctor I have seen!!! And none of you will bill my insurance. Haha.
  6. Hi Everyone, My name is Kat! I am currently in a business statistics class at Northern Illinois University. For this class we have to go a linear regression project. So, I decided that it would be interesting to find out more about Pots Syndrome (since I have it) and what effect the treatments that the doctors have come up with so far has had for myself and others who also have this ailment. To do this, I need your help! It's just a short, anonymous survey based on numbers. Your participations is GREATLY appreciated!! You are welcome to email your results to me (I will not use your email for any other purpose, except to send a personal 'thank you' directly to you) or post them in the forum (I know that this defeats the anonymous part, sorry, your identity will not be used in my results, I promise). If you could please do this ASAP, that would be great! Thanks So Much, Kat Click here to email Kat!! Pots Syndrome Survey This is a statistical survey, so numbers are the most important information needed. If you would like you include more information, you are welcome to. 1. How long did your doctor tell you it would take you to fully recover from Pots Syndrome? (if possible, please state answer in years) 2. How many medications do you take daily to help you deal with Pots Syndrome? (please count only those prescribed to you for treatment of Pots Syndrome & then just state a number) 3. How long do you exercise per week? (please state your answer in minutes per week) 4. How many grams of salt do you ingest per week?
  7. Hi Summer, I am on the BB metropolol and it causes me to have lots of brain fog, some days being worse then others. I am a college student, so I am I can sympathize with your situation. If you find anything that helps you out, PLEASE let me know. ~Katherine
  8. I was perfectly healthy and active up until I got pneumonia my senior year of high school, 4 years ago. I was in bed for 23 days with pneumonia, and while many of my symptoms got better, I never fully recovered. When I came down with pneumonia, I was perfectly health one day and literally couldn't get out of bed the next. When I was diagnosed with POTS syndrome, the time line seems to point to my getting so sick 4 years ago.
