Hi everyone. I’m curious if people have a tough time in the mornings with their POTS symptoms and how they manage? I feel like I’m being chased by a bear from the moment I wake up but I’m just sitting on the couch. I take my medications and drink water and a protein shake but I feel like it takes hours for me to get to a place where I can start moving. Any ideas would be great.

      I count on salt and hydration first thing every morning or I’m off the whole day

      If I’m dizzy I’ll wait until it’s better and then get up slowly. I’ll put my compression socks right away from the moment I wake up and take them for to shower. Then they’re back on again. I also keep SaltStick tablets on my nightstand, a salty snack, electrolytes like liquid IV ( I try to stay away from Gatorade because it has a lot of sugar) and V8 juice because my neurologist recommended it. The V8 juices helps me a lot because it has a lot of sodium. I also do daily IV saline infusions so that always helps since my POTS is so severe

      I always keep my morning meds + some Gatorade and a salty snack by my bed. also take it easy and make sure you're not too dizzy when you get up
