Hello!! I just recently got diagnosed with POTS in the midst of a few really intense, stressful months. Is it common for you all to experience more symptoms when severely anxious? Is it possible for intense stress to aid in the onset of POTS?

      POTS made my anxiety so much worse and my anxiety made my POTS worse. The mental game is huge when controlling POTS! I can say 6 years into POTS I am pretty much living a normal life!

"Yes, the anxiety makes the POTS worse and vice versa. Also not getting enough sleep or having a weird sleep schedule really affects me. My anxiety is a huge trigger for my symptoms. Some days it makes it hard to get out of bed. I tend to have anxiety attacks or panic attacks when I’m having a POTS flare, it can happen the other way around too."
