  1. Thank you everyone! Sounds like the first steps for me to take are easing into more exercise, increasing salt intake, and a lot more research. I have been attempting to do exercise but have been finding myself very unmotivated because I feel so tired and dizzy, but you all are giving me hope that I will overcome this! Another thanks for those resources, I will check them out!
  2. I'm a 28 year old man who has recently been diagnosed with POTS. Since high school I have been experiencing dizziness, migraines, irritable bowel, trouble sleeping, extreme lethargy, low motivation, etc and no doctor or specialist has been able to help. My sister also got diagnosed with it this summer. I'm hoping the POTS diagnosis is finally the answer. The problem is the quickest they can get me in to see a specialist (at OHSU in Oregon) is September 1 2020, almost 9 months away! I have just started researching and there is a ton of info out there. I guess I am hoping to find ways from the community to manage my symptoms until then. So far what has helped me with the migraines is taking Excederin and eating Vietnamese Pho soup (random I know), and the only thing that has maybe helped with my stomach is Gatorade, although I would like to find something without all the food coloring, corn syrup, and chemicals. I have been trying to exercise more but finding it really hard to make myself do it. I would really love to get back to my active lifestyle without constantly feeling dizzy and sick, any helpful suggestions would be so greatly appreciated! What has helped you the most? Thank you, Matthew
