  1. Hi. I've posted before as I have been off work and have a load of POTS symptoms, it floored me. I didn't initially realise this but when investigated non POTS specialists said in letters I may have POTS and need a specialist referral (waiting). I was diagnosed with hEDS a few years ago by a geneticist. Also CFS and IBS and OA. I have headaches, sweating, tachycardia on moving, always feel light headed and slightly confused when standing/moving and have always wanted to lie down, visual issues, chest discomfort, cannot tolerate heat.

I am already diagnosed with hypermobile EDS and am on antihypertensive whilst I have the BP side of things investigated. But the gp I saw was shocked when it increased on standing, said they had never seen it. From googling I may have mild hyperadrenic pots if that is possible, as I have loads of quite disabling Pots symptoms but my heart rate doesn't always go up by 20-30, my symptoms seem to vary day by day. Anyway if you see this, any info would be appreciated, thank you! I'm in the UK.
