Does anyone deal with vomiting or chronic dehydration? I have had Lyme for just over 10 months diagnosed. In actuality it's been 3 to 5 years I've had it. Antibiotics every day IV via port, plus Potassium and Saline every day. Magnessium is 3 days a week I plus multivitamins. I just curious what other people's experiences are.

No, but I know that with POTS hydration is important. Do you drink enough water but it doesn't hydrate you? Or is it because of the vomiting? Do you eat enough salt to help you retain the water?

I eat whatever I can mostly. Salt is part of my diet but I've never tracked how much I actually take in. I drink tons of water and fluids. Between oral and I I probably get close to 1.25 gallons of fluids a day. Which is around 20 cups total. I don't use the bathroom all the time either.

Post Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome.
It's from autonomic nervous system dysfunction (due to lyme and co's.)

When you rise from sitting your pulse will increase 30 bpm or more.
Sometimes it affects blood pressure as well.

You can have veinous pooling in the feet.

It sounds like you could have it OriolCarol.

What's the 'sale' position?


So next time you get up from sitting - do a quick pulse check...and see what it is.
