I am having a really bad flare because I started my period but today I woke up covered in hives and I don’t remember having anything i’m allergic to, could it be related to my flare somehow or just a badly timed coincidence?

      It might be MCAS, it’s commonly comorbid with POTS

      wrysteria - interesting, i’ll ask my doctor to test me, right now i’m also being tested to see what’s causing my seizures

      Replying to ChronicWitch, my POTS was worse in hotter climates and seasons, when I lived in Missouri in the summer, my POTS was at it's all time worst. My doctor confirmed heat can make it harder on your body. On a note unrelated to POTS, once I got Nexplanon, my periods got significantly less excruciatingly painful, so if you're regularly having a really bad reaction to your period, perhaps a hormone based birth control could help? Though, I'd highly recommend talking to a doctor before assuming that's the way to go.

      Honestly my POTS is always at its worse when it’s my period and in the summer, it could be a complete coincidence honestly. But I’d keep a close eye on it
