Ok, so i think my symptoms on abx may be linked to POTS or eleveted heart rate, palpitations, and hard breathing. How do you treat POTS? I know Dr. H discusses it, but how is it treated? Salt? Does it help? And in general, do abx for lyme help with POTS? HELP!
I have POTS. but mine is mild. When I stand from sitting, my heart rate goes up to over 100 bpm.
Treating the infections should also correct the POTS.
I know one treatment is beta blockers. But, they can also lower your blood pressure.
I've also been reading about
exercise helping. But, you need to start gradually...and sometimes seated exercise is warranted - like a recumbent bike.
