Hello everyone I’m new to this app. I’ve been experiencing extreme dizziness, fatigue, brain fog, trouble sleeping, heart palpitations, pots symptoms, trouble breathing at times and severe headaches for 3 years now. I just need the dizziness to stop. I’m a 21 year old college student and I can’t take this anymore. I can barely stand for more than 10 minutes without feeling like I’m gonna sink through the floor. I’ve been to over 20 specialists and I’ve been turned away by all. The doctors don’t care they tell you to do more cardio. I’m desperate for anyone who knows about any treatment that may help. A certain regimen of vitamins or food. It took me over a year to figure out that this happened due to having covid without knowing. If anyone knows anyone or anything that could help me please please reach out.

      I've got pots and I can't see a specialist yet but what's helped me a bit so far is drinking lots of water, increasing my salt intake, drinking electrolyte drinks daily like Gatorade or Pedialyte (Pedialyte works better), compression socks, try to avoid heat the best you can like no hot showers, don't eat/drink a large amount all at once try to eat more small meals overtime rather than a couple bigs ones, get plenty of sleep, when I'm gonna be doing something I'd need to be standing longer than 20 min for I use a wheelchair, avoid caffeine and meds with it or that are antihistamines, take breaks when you need and don't overdo it if you can help it, and if you do overdo it give yourself time to rest and just lay down for a day or more however long you need. I hope this helps! Also feel free to message me if you'd like <3
