  1. Debbie, I have hot and cold issues as u do. I was diagnosed at 56-ish and am now 68 I do fairly well now most of the time.
  2. For me it was about 1 1/2 yrs before I found a doc who ran necessary tests and properly diagnosed me with POTS. Then some adding and adjusting meds took perhaps 3 mos, but I began feeling better within two months-/although still quite tired and trouble concentrating for work. I did keep working tho. I did much better with meds than many, many people.
  3. I have been relatively stable for about 10-12 years with meds for POTS. However in this past 6 mos, I've experienced some bradycardia 40-49 but and sometimes systolic BP 97-101. Via phone I was told to eat more salt. That did help systolic BP rise, and perhaps has helped pulse rate rise a little. I've been on Metoprolol ER 50mg for about 10 years with no dosage changes. I see POTS doc again around Nov 2017, so will see what he says at that time.
