  1. Hi, I have a hyperkewl vest from Amazon. They are 39.99 plus shipping. It is the type you soak in water and it cools through evaporation. It's a little muggy but it's affordable and it helps. I have not tried the more expensive ones myself. Good luck.
  2. Congratulations! Thanks so much for sharing how you are doing. I look at older posts and notice many people who don't post anymore and have wondered if it was because they had improved. I have had such a hard time trying to decide to let go of certain responsibilities (work, five horses, projects) because I'd hate to let them all go and then magically recover. But, I know deep down it is important to let go and focus on healing and taking care of ourselves and then try to work back up to the demands of our former life very gradually. Also a great time to take stock of what was important in
  3. I heard about these a year or so ago. You set up a treadmill with a standing height desk or shelves and run it at 1 mile per hour so that you are at a gentle walk while you work, talk on the phone etc. Since having POTS I have usually felt best if I am moving a bit without exerting myself and have been thinking about trying something like this, since I work from home.

  4. Hey there, I haven't had endometriosis but suffered through super heavy periods, cramps bad enough they put me in a state of shock basically and low ferritin levels. I got an endometrial ablation in March as an alternative to a hysterectomy. I'm already sans gallbladder and thyroid gland so I thought I might want to keep this organ :-). I have no idea if it is of any help for endometriosis but my Ferritin levels came up from 4 to 41 in 3 months and I was only getting in two iron pills per day vs. the three they wanted me to take. I now have a "panty liner period" and no cramps. Have they
  5. Hi everyone, this is my first post and I've not introduced myself yet... I checked with the THRIEEM Pots registry re. the exercise program today because my cardiologist had not gotten a response to his e-mail last Friday. I got a response that said the gal who has e-mailed previously is on maternity leave and the registry may not be attended while she is gone (until September). Has anyone else had a recent response? Thanks, Sandra
