  1. Hi all, I am trying to get any feedback/hear about other experiences that anyone is willing to offer me here right now as I am in a bad place currently, at least in my own mind and/body... My current Diagnosis at 21 years old and has been this way since I was 14 years old is POTS, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Type 3 hypermobile, gastroparesis, amplified muskuloskeletal pain syndrome(AMPS), depression, anxiety, ADHD, and possible bipolar disorder. I was diagnosed with POTS at 14 years old at Children's Hospital Of Philadelphia, PA in 2012. Ever since my symptoms were starting to com
  2. Just wanted to update you guys on the stimulant situation I have been having... I went to see that new adult POTS MD and I did not like him at all. He was a very strange guy, and I feel that he did not not want to deal with my chronic fatigue issue as he thought i was a mood problem as well. So I went to see my psychiatrist and she now prescribing me Vyvanse 20mg every morning to help keep me awake. It seems to work, but truly not as long as adderall worked. the initial effects were the same however or at least very similar. So from here I will be entering a POTS protocol/pain progr
  3. @DizzyGirls Hmm, I will have to give the liquid caffeine a shot. It sounds interesting. And you're right, I shouldnt feel bad about taking certain meds I agree. I will see what my new MD says and keep you guys updated for sure!! Thank you!
  4. @yogini the only meds that I take that could cause some fatigue is my high amount of xyzal that I have to take due to possible mast cell activation syndrome and my abilify 10mg every night for depression and anxiety. other than that nothing really. and my blood pressure is usually perfect like 125/70. but my heart rate is still pretty high so I should definitely start doing more cardio when exercising
  5. Hi, So to try and make a long story short, I was diagnosed with POTS and Ehlers Danlos sydnrome 7 years ago, and I am now a 20 year old male. My number one symptom that I've had for as long as I can remember is chronic fatigue/brain fog, then followed by joint/muscle pain full body. I have been on stimulants I would say 5-6 years now, trying literally almost all of them. Starting with adderall, then ritalin, ritalin LA, focalin, quillivant xr, dexedrine, dyanavel, modafinil, strattera, adderall again and more adderall. Stressing adderall because that is the problem with the current situat
  6. Hi, So I have been diagnosed with POTS for over 5 years now I'm a 19 year old male. I really struggled Til I did the POTS clinic at children's hospital of Philadelphia back in 2013. Since then I've still had my symptoms of some tachycardia, heat intolerance, anxiety, GI issues, brain fog. etc. But it was managed very well overall until of recent. A little over a month ago I started on Accutane(the strongest acne medication for my cystic acne), and I took it for a month, then I did my one month blood work check up and my liver function came back over double of what it should be so I had
