What is the best way to help a pots attack. I’m out of town this weekend and have been having them a couple times a day for months now. But it’s really bothersome when I’m busy. How do you get them better/to stop?

      You can't always do it, but laying down with your feet above your heart is a good way to lessen the effects or stop (for some people) an episode

      Feet up and salt! Also wheelchair if youre not already using one :) You can get liquid IV from boots which is supposed to be good

      Drinking electrolytes (liquid IV or gatorade), eating something salty & laying down & putting my feet up above heart level helps me during an attack

"Managing triggers such as heat, hunger, and marijuana can help prevent POTS episodes. If an episode is already coming on, finding an adequate place to sit down is crucial. Other management strategies include staying hydrated, wearing compression socks, and using a smart watch or similar device to monitor your pulse frequently. It's also recommended to keep your environment controlled to avoid episodes."
