I just got my first pfizer vaccination. After months of waiting and plenty of stress I was able to do it. It took so long since my POTS was just being noticed and it worsened tenfold. I cant see doctors to help me. Only place in my area made you walk to the back of the store and I couldnt manage such a short distance without fainting(i really need a wheelchair). Im high risk so not being able to get it was so stressful. But I figured things out, got salt pills, and waited until I seemed more stable with them. Im so happy I finally got it. Came home and crashed on the stairs. Idk if it was just the activity or the vaccine aswell but damn am I fatigued. I heard the second shot is the worst with POTS. Just wanted to share a bit of good news as it is hard to come by it, even as small as it is. Im gonna go back to bed lmao.

      hi love!! i have POTS too and if it helps, i felt SOO much better within a day or two of getting each shot! my symptoms hardly lasted a day— and i much prefer dealing with that over covid, especially since covid is causing POTS in many patients. i’d much rather feel a little sick from the vaccine than have significantly worse long-term dysautonomia symptoms due to getting covid. best of luck to you, and welcome to the pfizer club!!!! <3
