  1. I definitely agree, start slow and see how you react. Give yourself lots of grace, it’s a balancing act. Just start small and work up.
  2. Oh my goodness, I might need to look into these. My earbuds always hurt my ears, so thanks for this tip!
  3. It's so hard to know what causes flares. Sometimes for me I don't have to do anything different, it's hard to predict. It gets discouraging, it's up and down. Sometimes it's just a couple of days and sometimes it's weeks. Just try and take good care of yourself in the mean time. It's really hard and frustrating, I hope you get feeling better soon!!
  4. Seriously??? An LSD overdose......because everyone knows that that is like?????? Oh my goodness that is a crazy insane experience. I'm so sorry. Some ppl are so so....AHHHHHHHHH!!! Like where is your brain? Where do these comments come from? It's so crazy.
  5. A good doctor can be hard to find. You don't realize this until you actually get sick and need a good doctor or team of doctors on your side. I had to switch doctors recently for primary care, and I'm so glad. My new doctor is amazing and understands things so much better. It's so nice to feel like she's on side.
  6. I feel like this....almost every night. I can't handle things. A tub helps me too. You are not alone, and I'm glad to know I am not either. Thank you so much for this post!
  7. I have tried Pamela's GF Bread, that has been really good.
  8. I also have a Fitbit Charge 2, for the most part I like it. But I have had trouble with it accurately tracking my heart rate, especially when I am riding the bike. It's very strange. But overall I have been happy with it. Like others have said it really shows when your heart rate has been high for 2-6 hours in a day why you feel so bad. So that has been really eye opening. Waterproof would be nice...
  9. I haven't found the "root cause" there is some speculation from a virus I had when I was younger, but they don't really know. I am still working out how to help managing my POTS. I did just find a new primary care doctor who seems to really understand this, so I am excited about that. I hope that you can find a doctor you can trust and can help!
  10. I hope you can find a combination that works for you! Hopefully the cardiologist can help you get a plan that will work for you. I don't have anything else to add to what the others said, glad you are getting on the path to move forward.
  11. I have totally experienced this as well. We have family that live 4-5 hours away, and I rarely can make the trip if I am alone. When I can it takes me 2-3 days to bounce back. But recently even a drive an hour has been really tough. So sorry you are dealing with this as well!
  12. My heart rate changes very frequently as well with minor changes. It definitely shows the dysfunction in our autonomic nervous systems!
  13. I haven't had peppermint tea, but sometimes I have had success with peppermint essential oil on my stomach. I will have to try a peppermint tea again too, I am glad it is helping you!
  14. Hi there! It can be really hard even with supportive family. No one can really totally understand what you are going through, and how you feel. It's awesome to have this community to be able to talk, if things are good, if things are bad, any old time!
