Currently being tested for POTS. The doctor is 99% sure I have it. I consistently feel fuzzy in my head and can't seem to think or process anything. Feel like my brain is being squeezed and like I am going to pass out.I Severe sweating, light, and noise sensitivity. Frequent migraines. My vision sometimes is normal and at other times I see black spots that to me look like little gnats flying around in my field of vision. I am not allowed to drive at all. Which is inconvenient considering I am a mail carrier. I have been off work since the end of August. The post office doesn't have restricted duty for rural carriers unless it's a worker's comp claim. I have never heard of this syndrome. I have googled it but would like to hear from people and their experiences with this syndrome. Thank you in advance for any responses and help.

      I'm sorry you are going through this. It is so hard dealing with those symptoms! I don't have any advice for you though, as I have the same type of symptoms and keep going in circles with my Drs trying to figure it out. I would like to follow your post, if that's ok with you. I think it will be very helpful for both of us. 🫂 🙏

        @dolphinblues I'm curious, what type of Dr are you seeing for this?

          @dolphinblues A neurologist is the one who diagnosed me. At the Cleveland Clinic, Main Campus, they have dedicated specialists who work with this syndrome. They are so understanding and discovering new ways to treat POTS.
