  1. Is this about infusions or how much fluids you drink? I drink 3.5 litres per day as advised and up to 10gms of salt via food
  2. I get them after eating sometimes. I only eat small meals, low carbs.
  3. I have two Omron and my Drs use the same. Feel they are pretty good.
  4. Cutting out stodgy carbs and eating smaller meals helped me so much.
  5. Very interesting. I developed neuropathic pain all over 13 years ago as the dysautonomia and POTS progressed.
  6. Hi. Sorry you feel that this was all a waste of time, effort and money. I became ill with fatigue issues after Glandular Fever and surgery in 1984. Felt awful for 8 years until I got an diagnosis of ME/CFS. Symptoms waxed and waned over the years and improved when I started to eat more healthily. I got fitter and lost heaps of weight. Then in 2007 I had symptoms of whole body neuropathy, POTS and autonomic dysfunction. Put on Gabapentin and Nortriptyline. Then finally got diagnoses of Ehlers-Danlos and POTS. I didn't have ME it was always EDS and POTS. Many friends with ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia

  10. Lying down levels everything out, no blood pooling.
  11. I've decided to go for some Osteopathy once I can leave my home.
  12. I was diagnosed late in life, five years ago. I saw a really good specialist for a few years and he was really interested in exploring everything about POTS. He left for a post overseas and his replacement was lovely, too, but only stayed about a year. Then another specialist came on the scene and he seemed less tuned into POTS. My breathing was getting worse and so he decided to send me for some tests. The only thing that showed up were things I already knew that I had. I had a follow-up telephone conversation with a nurse and she got back to me later and the doctor wanted to sign me off. The
  13. Thank you for your replies and I can identify completely with what you are saying. My neck isn't in great shape but years ago it was my lower back that was the biggest issue. I have a Dowager's hump and C5-C7 issues of stenosis. I have been receiving physio advice over the phone about gently exercising my neck. I have also looked into trying to treat the hump as that is uncomfortable, too. I am wearing a brace for 2 hours per day at present and using 2 balled socks to gently press onto the spiny hump when lying down/high-backed chair, and doing chin tucks at the same time. I am doing this very
