I got the flu so now all of my pots symptoms are 10x worse. I thought I was crazy, but no wonder. I feel so anxious about getting behind in school though, I’m only allowed to miss 2 days, sick or not, and I already have used both. There’s just simply nothing I can do about it though as I can’t even sit up right now. Has anyone else had it this year? I hear it’s maybe not as bad as some strands.

    I had it earlier this month and then got the flu shot and contracted the virus again this week, so I understand your frustration. Increase your salt and fluid intake as much as possible. Focus on high potassium foods like bananas, sweet potatoes and spinach and let yourself rest as much as possible. Try to avoid medications with aspirin in them as that can worsen POTS symptoms. Sending well wishes your way!
