Has anybody ever had episodes where you get really dizzy and disoriented, lose speech and hand function and get like super sweaty and overheating? I’ve been having those lately and am wondering if maybe they’re non-epileptic seizures related to my POTS?
Chronic Nausea and Vomiting
Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)
Do you feel super nauseous as well??
Yeah I have all that, but I think my POTS and ASD work together to make things more intense.
Any specific triggers? I get the same thing often during/after standing or changing positions, also if I am stressed
This could be a vasovagal episode as well. But always good to run it by your doctors and neuro.
I get those whenever I stand for longer than 10-15 minutes. The brain fog is especially hard to deal with, but none of it feels good. If you can get a diagnosis and medication, great. If not, try upping your salt and water intake. My doctor has me drinking at least 100oz of water a day and taking 6g of salt in the form of Vitassium Salt Stick tablets. I take 6 in the morning and 6 at night. They have helped me tremendously.
