For those with neuropathic POTS (burning, tingling, pins): Has it stayed the same, gotten better, or progressed?
Rkirkland replied to Rkirkland's topic in Dysautonomia DiscussionHi p8d, thanks for responding. I'm interested in knowing the correlation with SFN with your POTS. I presume your POTS left you housebound from the getgo. If so, which one of the following 9 options apply to you? In each option, we assume the presence of flares. POTS same as it was 3.5 years ago, SFN same. POTS same as it was 3.5 years ago, SFN worse POTS same as it was 3.5 years ago, SFN better. OR POTS better than 3.5 years ago, SFN same. POTS better than it was 3.5 years ago, SFN worse POTS better than it was 3.5 years ago, SFN better. OR POTS worse than 3.5 years ago, SFN same. POTS worse than it was 3.5 years ago, SFN worse POTS worse than it was 3.5 years ago, SFN better. Thanks so much.
Hello to fellow Neuropathic POTS patients, I'm curious as to the trajectory of your POTS. Here, by Neuropathic, I presume the existence of small-fibre neuropathy and its associated features (burning sensations, pinpricks, electric shocks, goosebumps, etc). Some studies have said that neuropathic pots patients had a higher rate of recovery, some others draw no conclusion. As a result, I have two main questions 1). Has your POTS stayed the same, worsened, or progressed? 2). For each of the above, does the small fibre neuropathy correlated with it (less tingling and burning if its gotten better or more burning and pins if its gotten worse)? There's just such less information about long-term prognosis in POTS in general and especially neuropathic POTS. Lets help each other out and future readers by stating how you are. As for me, I've only had POTS for a 1.75 years. In that time, my POTS has remained constant with periods (days, months, or weeks) of good days alternating with bad days. The features of small fibre neuropathy have remained constant since I got it. Thanks so much! All of you are so amazing.
