      Basically agree with what everyone's said. Uptake in salt. Compression socks. Check your BP after living down then standing up. Other than that a tilt table test will get you a diagnosis.

      Up your salt intake and drink lots of water. I was diagnosed with the tilt table test. Find a doctor that listens was my most challenging part

      No, the easiest test to try is a HUTT test. Fastest results too. Make sure to drink plenty of water and 6 tiny meals a day rather than 3 big ones.

A: Before going to the doctor, you can try a standing test by measuring your heart rate when laying down for 10 minutes and then when standing up for 10 minutes. If the change is more than 40 beats per minute or your heart rate gets higher than 120, you should definitely tell your doctor. Additionally, make sure to drink plenty of water and consider trying compression socks for symptom relief. However, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
