  1. I am definitely interested. let me know details pls.
  2. Thank you guys for your advice. I will definitely try. I love skiing, since I'm originally from Canada, but haven't been since I've been sick w POTS.I have a really hard time traveling. Usually sets me back a few days all together.

  4. http://www.amazon.com/Earthlite-Pneumatic-Rolling-Massage-Stool/dp/B00122OW9K This is website to adjustable rolling stool
  5. I ordered it online. Not sure what site. Just look for an adjustable rolling stool. It's a lifesaver. As well as my cane chair that I use when I am in a store line.
  6. I bought a rolling stool for the kitchen that I sit on to do cooking, dishes, etc. and another regular stool in laundry room, makes a world of difference. Also squatting always, never bending is helpful. I had to give up vacuuming etc, since it always sets off my symptoms. Hope that helps.
  7. I am accompanying my family on a ski trip to Jackson Hole, WY on Friday. I live in Florida @ sea level. Wondering if anyone has had any issues with there POTS symptoms in higher elevation. My husband says I should try skiing one day. Has anyone ever tried?
  8. I just got one last week, all I put on it was Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome , then under that diagnoses I put call --------- then they can get all the accurate information from a trusted family member or friend.
  9. Relax86, I have your exact same issues. My family hates that my smell issue is ongoing, but it get headaches, sinus pain, nausea. I developed this about 10years ago. I've always had light, motion issues since kid. likely motion sickness?
  10. I went to Vanderbilt back in April. After 10mins TTT Standing-My bp did increase >10 and heart rate was >30 increased and norepinephrine was 1260, Dr.biagionni told me I was had hyperadrenic POTS.
  11. I guess they state we are all prone to low sodium levels if we don't take in adequate amounts of salt compared to fluid intake. It can dilute it too much
  12. Yes. Relax86, I get the same symptoms as you, except it's my left side of cheek down left side of neck- numbness and almost a tight neck pressure. Very uncomfortable.
  13. Katie, I'm going to Vandy this Monday 7/23- for research study. Good luck!
  14. Oh, yes I did that. But they didn't ask to see it until I went into Vanderbilt. They were all around the same 110/70 HR-60-70- laying 120-130/80-90 HR 110's -standing.
  15. I saw dr. Biaggioni at the clinic mid April. Then I got a spot in study within 2months. They have a very strict protocol to get into study. They do evaluate you in depth at clinic and then you have to know your interest in research study. It's the idiopathic POTS pts they are interested in I'm pretty sure.
