      Yes, I can get nauseous when I have a flare up of POTS, for me it's a combination of the POTS and low blood pressure which cause headaches which in turn cause the neaseau. The only thing that works for me is Barocca or a B12 supplementary drink or just rest.

      Yikes! I definitely deal with all these symptoms and didn't know what it was for years. I went to the cardiologist, the Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor, and the normal doctor and no one knew what it was. Then after getting my symptoms somewhat under control with proper hydration, sodium intake, eating every 3 hours, sleeping enough and keeping up with caffeine and sugar, my Gynecologist tells me that I have POTS.

        @Hamie oh my god it's literally awful I'm so glad you managed to get it sorted out for u! I'm still struggling for a diagnosis but I do have a pretty good sense that it's POTS. Its symptoms line These that make it harder for doctors . It's a struggle!

          @Typicaldeepgenz Thank you! I hope you get yours sorted and try my solutions to see what helps you the most. It's definitely a struggle. I had it start a couple years ago and my parents would be mad at me for getting nauseous and taking me home or getting me stuff to feel better.

      Yes I also have to take showers sitting down and whith someone near by because of the heat! Heat intolerance is a huge con for me since barley even getting hot causes fainting spells

        @chronicllyillgirl omg no becuase I like baths so I have baths a lot and I alwyas have such bad POTS episode getting out. It's why I stopped having showers becuase the heat is awful . One of the worst things about pots honestly

      Dizziness can lead to nausea, so that makes sense. Plus, POTS can cause GI issues because we tend to be more sedimentary.

        @Gingeralamode oh yeah I think my dizziness is where I get it from and yeah I tend to have a lot of GI issues unfortunately

      I have chronic nausea but standing does worsen it bc of POTS sometimes. I’ve noticed if my nausea is particularly bad POTS can be to blame. If I’m not already wearing compression socks throwing those on actually helps reduce the nausea sometimes. Really is an annoying symptom though.

        @beingnotseeming omg it's so bad annoying like I don't ha chronic nausea that sounds tough I hope you're okay but I do get nauseous a lot especially after I eat and stuff which makes pots so much worse for me and yeah it is I'll try and get some socks tho and see if that helps

      I deal with some nausea, but not necessarily when I stand. There’s a pressure point on my hand that kind of helps to ease it. I use my thumb to rub the center of my palm and it helps a bit for me.

        @NewYork I'll give it ago thanks becuase
