    I actually pass out due to my POTS so I have a walker for my okay days. For my bad days I have a wheelchair. I use my compression socks for the blood pooling problem. I drink electrolytes all day, and I have salt with me at all times. I have ice packs for going out because I overheat really easily. I have extra dark sunglasses for the migraines. I tried medication, you can ask your doctor for a blood pressure upper and a betta blocker. The betta blocker stop the heart rate from jumping and the blood pressure upper to control the blood pressure because the other medication will lower your blood pressure. Good luck 👍 It's a struggle for me, but I try to make it work.

    On my bad days I’m pretty much in bed . Like today my HR is lower but stomach bloated and very short of breath. . It’s different day to day . Just have to figure out what your dealing with and how to calm those symptoms down . I’d log your daily symptoms and how your feeling . Will help figuring out what to do more or less of
