I’m curious what daily regimens other people are doing for POTS syndrome? And has it been helping?

      I drink a lot of water and an electrolyte drink almost everyday, i love bodyarmours cuz it gives me a lot of extra hydration and if i need the extra salt i drink a dripdrop

      Gaining weight basically cured my pots. My pots came on when I was eating like 1200 calories a day.

      Seen some videos where a doctor mentioned a disease called beri beri that has similar symptoms to pots. It's treated by adding B1 and other B vitamins to your diet. I have definitely felt better after taking B1 and Vitamin B complex

        @daledynamite I agree! My functional doctor has me on all the b vitamins and I have been feeling alot better. It’s nice to hear that a lot of the suggestions I am getting I am already doing :)

      4 grams of sodium & 3 liters of water daily. I take a salt tablet 3 times a day to help get to that sodium goal. Plus aquatic physical therapy and stretching at least once a day (that’s more for fibromyalgia though)

      High electrolyte drink (LMNT), compression socks, pillow wedge, eating extra salt and taking salt tablets when I remember, Mestonin. Was due to do a stamina increasing PT thing but my iron is totally depleted so they said not safe til I get iron infusions.

      Hi! The most important thing for me in managing POTS is drinking enough water, which is something I struggle with.
