I still get dizzy and pass out when laying down, for example when I am as sleeping I will wake up with rapid heart beat, sweating, complete weakness and then faint over and over. I'm doing absolutely nothing but sleeping having normal dreams no nightmares. Does this happen to anyone else. My doctor never really says anything about it when I tell him but he always looks in shock and always asks if I'm sure lying down doesn't help.

      I would totally recommend you all to go see a naturopathic doc! I’m getting a lot of help and unanswered questions. Definitely worth a try!

      This is very normal for POTS. During the night our blood pressure changes and even when supine it will cause issues. York cardiology on youtube made a fee videos on this. I take salt before bed, drink water every time I wake up, and keep my temperature regulated in my room. Any noise can trigger your nervous system so keeping it quiet and dark can help.

      Are you not on any medication?

      The exact same thing happens to me pretty regularly. This is the part of my pots no doctor has been able to explain. Taking some blood pressure medicine has helped but not fixed the issue.
