  1. Have you seen any doctors? Do you have a formal diagnosis of POTS? Taking medication?
  2. same! I tried going for headaches/neck pain and after the 3rd neck adjustment I nearly fainted as I was walking to my car. I'd never go back to any chiro for a neck adjustment.
  3. This is an excellent way to explain it. It's like a skipped beat but in my stomach... Did you get any answers as to what it was?
  4. anyone get stomach spasms that coincide with feeling faint? They last for a second or 2. No pain.
  5. can pvc's/skipped beats make you feel faint/light headed for a second or 2?
  6. can skipped beats/pvc make you feel faint/light headed for a second or 2?
  7. I'm laying down and getting a tattoo. I was in normal psychical health and was not diagnosed with anything at all. I'm nervous about all things involving needles so I'm 99% sure I didn't eat enough before hand. I definitely had plenty of fluids and had water and gatorade with me. After at least 2 hours of laying flat, I got up to take a break. After about 10-20 seconds I slowly collapsed. Tunnel vision, light headed, weak, slowly fell down. Can this happen to a person WITHOUT POTS?
  8. Can anyone recommend a monitor that you wear across your chest and can see your bpm in real time. Something more accurate than the fitbit and apple watch.
  9. Right, but why did i feel like that when that's never happened? I had a real TTT and lasted about 10 min before feeling sick. It's my understanding that with POTS the person always gets tachycardia/dizzy upon standing. This doesn't happen to me at home though.
  10. The first doc i saw said i only had dysautonomia.(had an autonomic reflex screen done) I wanted to get a 2nd opinion from someone else. So he has me lay down on the table for a few min and the nurse takes my blood pressure and monitors pulse. I stand up and within a few minutes I started to feel dizzy and feel like I could have passed out if I didn't lay back down. This has never happened to me at any point over the last 2.5 years. (dealing with pots symptoms for 2.5 years) The new doc said I have POTS but didn't elaborate on much else. Any thoughts?
  11. Thanks for the responses. Unfortunately, I'm not qualified for anything that pays well. My disability already ran out too.
  12. Of course I just had to be a welder in construction before I was diagnosed. I don't feel like I can do the things I used to do in terms of psychical work. Certain things I can but no job is going to want to accommodate that. It also comes down to a safety aspect as well. Has anyone changed careers?
  13. Thanks for the response. I never had any surgery so I'm not sure what you are referencing. Can you recommend a pre/pro biotic? I've never had them before. Thank you
  14. Thanks for the responses. The rolaids didn't do anything for me. Wouldn't tums or rolaids help for bloating or not necessarily? I am literally bloated 24/7 (I have a visible gut lol) so wouldn't I have to be eating something every single day thats bothering me? I rarely eat processed foods and stopped drinking soda years ago. Perhaps eliminating gluten would be a good start?
