Does anyone has a service dog for POTS or narcolepsy? I’ve heard they can be trained to alert for blood pressure drops and sleep attacks (maybe not both but still). I would love to have an alert to find somewhere to sit or even have an animal sit with me to help me feel safer in public spaces.

      I'm in the process of getting a SD for POTS and mobility tasks! while she won't do alerts, SDs can be trained for that! some of the POTS tasks mine is training for are Deep Pressure Therapy, laying under my legs to elevate them, and bracing for when I'm unsteady on my feet!

        @andromeda.spoons that’s awesome! I didn’t consider a dog could help elevate legs 🥹 What breed are you getting/do you have?
