      It's more about managing 5hings to avoid, my biggest triggers are heat, hunger, and marijuana. When I feel an episode coming on I rundown a list of things that could be causing it, thirst, hunger, heat, high, etc., and controlling my environment is the number one treatment when it comes to avoiding episodes. If one is already coming on, finding an adequate place to sit down is the absolute most important thing.

      I second that. Doctors will all set their own treatment plans for you, but salt, compression, electrolytes, and hydration are the main management ways on your own. Maybe a smart watch or something to measure you pulse often

      Unfortunately there is not specific way to make POTS just go away, it's all about finding ways to manage and seeing what works for you. This can be with medication or just doing things such as drinking extra water, wearing compression socks etc.

To treat POTS, increase fluid intake (2-2.5L of water minimum), consume more salt (3,000-10,000 mg), wear compression socks, and try gentle exercises like the Dallas Protocol. Some people also find relief with hydration, salt tablets, and maintaining a consistent daily routine.
