Anyone experience pots or near fainting happens Everytime I'm standing I'll have to lay down quick . I have low blood pressure a lot now no idea y never did before. I took a shower and had to put the water cold and lay down quick rite now due to near fainting. Everything goes black almost like it's fading away and this extremely heavy sensation comes over my shoulders and head as if an elephant is sitting on my shoulders and is weighing me down. Happens to my chest sometimes as well feel this heavy warmth of weight like if someone is sitting on my chest makes it hard to breathe does air hunger feel like that?? It's kinda warmth sensation in my chest at the same time babesia??
Yes, I have it. My heart rate goes up over 100 from sitting to standing position. The blood pressure is the other piece. It should go up, but with POTS it can go down when sitting to standing.
I don't think my BP is a major piece of my POTS.
Sounds like you could have babesia. The air hunger and the POTS. Although the POTS I believe could also be bartonella.
For the POTS - I 've read regular exercise can help. Of course if you're not able to stand for long periods...then maybe a recumbent bike? But very short amount of time to see how you tolerate it. And only if it's safe to do so.
A Physiotherapist might be a good option - find one who is educated in POTS treatment.
