  1. I own a small CAD business where I design custom jewelry for retail stores- they give me their ideas, I make them come to life on the computer. Being self employed really has it's pros when having a horrible day. If I ever want to change careers and work for someone else I could use my CAD training at many different types of businesses- If someone is tech savvy or interested in computer work I would highly recommend the Computer Aided Design programs for people who happen to have POTS. Sadly, I have a degree in Exercise Science with an emphasis in strength and conditioning... obviously not us
  2. hmmm... I might have to try this! I have a horrible time sleeping too. I cannot understand why it would work? but I'm all for it if it does!
  3. Mike- I think speaking up will be the hardest part for me! I try so hard to hide or fight through my symptoms. Also you are so right, I think I'll call them today asking if I change switch that class before? why not! Thank you!! Outofadream- I will more than likely be contacting you when time get closer!

I'll definitely take Mike's advice and try to find something to keep me calm while there. Maybe they should give me the relaxation technique class BEFORE the sweat test
  5. Hello Everyone- I'm new to the forum, this is my first post! I'm so excited I have found this place with so much information and helpful members. Recently, I was diagnosed in a very small clinic with POTS, after taking my BP and HR laying on the exam table, then sitting up, then standing, the doctor made it like seem like no big deal- oh you have POTS, that's all. I feel very blessed after reading some forums here my symptoms seem to be mild compared to others, but I'm far from leading an average life. I am now being referred to the Mayo POTS clinic in Rochester, MN, to confirm the diagnosis.
