What's something that can help me, besides medications?

      Exercise!! Walking slowing and building up each day and doing it everyday. Resting made me much worse. Hydrating before walking too (not water). I’m so much better and off all meds. I went to so many doctors, and only the last one told me to walk. I haven’t had to go back to doctor since for POTS.

      I agree with electrolytes! Liquid IV is fantastic. Also PT with someone specializing in POTS was very helpful for me for awhile. I did IV fluids for about a year, and they helped, but I know they can be hard to get sometimes. Good luck! :)

      As they said salt and electrolytes, also taking a break when you need it and not overdoing it. I find laying down with my legs up helps (just make sure to be careful when you stand up!)

      I usually drink Gatorade or propel, and eat salty fries from restaurants. And staying cool- heat makes it worde
