Does anyone notice that anxiety makes pots symptoms worse?? i was having some anxiety yesterday and my heart rate was in the 150’s just sitting down and it felt like all of my pot’s symptoms were hitting me at once. just want to know if anyone else experienced this or what it’s like for them?

      Yes, the anxiety makes the POTS worse and vice versa. Also not getting enough sleep or having a weird sleep schedule really affects me

      Yes definitely, my anxiety is a huge trigger for my symptoms. Some days it makes it hard to get out of bed.

      Definitely. I tend to have anxiety attacks or panic attacks when I’m having a POTS flare, it can happen the other way around too.

      Yes, I tend to pass out more due to stress

      I notice that if I’m anxious my symptoms will be significantly worse even if im doing something that normally doesn’t trigger anything.
