A lot of people don't believe I have POTS. I'm starting to question myself now. What are some symptoms I should know?

      The bottom line, does your body not like being upright (standing or even sitting upright). When mine srarted, it was abrupt. Within 5 minutes of standing, i was 170bpm and extremely short of breath and simoly had to sit down. Sitting down, actually reclining with knees up and I'd be okay in minutes. The more servere, the longer it took to recover. After the worst ones, after recovery stage, i actually had hours up to a day of NO SYMPTOMS. odd stuff. But if i never needed to get up from my reclined pisition, i would have No problems. Also had no life and couldnt maintain as we all need bathroom and food.

      Every person's POTS can show up differently. For example, some people faint daily (me), some will never faint.... I would be happy to send a link to an in depth list of pots signs/symptoms if you'd like
