How do you deal with getting dizzy at the gym and avoiding overdoing your workout? Sometimes I go in feeling superhuman and incredibly focused, but after I get done or close to the end of my cardio, I realize I've pushed myself way too hard and now I'm gonna feel bad for the rest of the day.

      I have had similar, under desk peddler sounds like an idea I think sometimes making sure you drink plenty of fluids, enjoy spending some time to yourself but don’t feel like you can’t reach out to friends. I think playing instruments or games might be good 😌. Sometimes I feel that too it’s as if you have had a wonderful day but you can’t understand why you are feeling different. There’s a lot of similarities here that maybe I should look at too. POTS can sometimes just be there. It’s about using different things you pick up from being around you. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming. Going running is a good idea however when the gym makes you feel like you have done more than enough it can feel like a crisis of some sort. Try and stick to a plan you can write just a bullet point with 1-3 things you want to do

One person suggested using an under desk bike peddler every other day for 30 minutes as recommended by their cardiologist. However, they noted that it can be challenging due to fatigue and dizziness. They also mentioned doing floor pilates or similar exercises for 15 minutes as a gentler option. Another person recommended starting with walking, even if it's slow, and gradually moving on to other forms of exercise like yoga as the body becomes more resilient.
