Would love to hear your thoughts on this.. a few days ago I had another bad episode of almost passing out I went downstairs to grab my food and back up not fast at all and as soon as I got in my room I could barely even sit and was definitely almost out, it’s happened a few times but not as bad and don’t know why at all?

      @Mac2 you can do it yourself! You basically lie down, test your blood pressure after two minutes, sit, check after two more minutes, stand, and check after two more minutes. The official test is on an actual table but this replicates it well!! Gives you a good idea. Heart monitors can be helpful but not really for POTS sadly. I hope you get more help!!

      Have you done a tilt table test? If it occurs after a position change POTS is likely! Definitely schedule an appointment with a cardiologist if you haven’t already, and in the meantime get some compression socks and salt tablets! They are life savers. I really hope you get this figured out, keep me posted!

        @Belugabear thank you, no I haven’t done a tilt test yet is that like the eply maneuver? Will definitely get checked out for pots and a few others, when I last saw a cardiologist all he did was give me a heart monitor, thank you for your help:)
