Does anyone have any helpful tips about your period and POTs? My symptoms get like three times worse during my period and I was wondering if there is something else I should be trying? I already take salt tablets and eat lots of salt and drink water and electrolytes all the time and wear compression socks. Just looking for some helpful relief tips if anyone has any.
Feeling of choking
Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)
this happens to me too and i have no clue what to do :(
it sucks because it doesn’t seem like anybody does. I wish we weren’t like this girl ❤️
I would say try taking an iron supplement on your period, and we just have to be extra gentle with our bodies
I think I will try the iron supplement tomorrow! Thank you for this idea! I didn’t even think of it.
ofc! Hope it helps 🙏
Compression socks seriously save me and weird as it is I still wear them in the shower so I don’t pass out
I know you said you already wear them I just wanted to clarify I DID read that haha I needed to throw in the shower tidbit in case that helps manage pain or ease symptoms in any way ( I’m so scatterbrained tonight I’m sorry )
the shower is the worst for me so maybe I will try this. I end up being able to stand to shampoo but have to sit for everything else. So I can stand in there for like 5 minutes and then I’m done 😂
oh the shower is the worst for me 😅 like I want it warm because it feels nice but then I always get lightheaded
this happens to me too. but I do everything I can and I'm in physical therapy.. so idk what i should do
I am also in PT. I truly don’t know what else to do either
yeah.. its like im stuck in a constant loop.
