I have severe pots. I can't stand for more than a few minutes. It really hasn't improved that much over the past year although I just started treating Babesia. Does it actually go away with treatment. For those who had severe POTS, meaning that you fainted and couldn't stand, did it go away? Is it worth going to a POTS doctor? I feel like it may contradict with a lot of things im doing with Dr. J but I really need this symptom to improve. Ive been exercising hardcore but still no improvement. If I don't have those compression stockings on, I don't know how I would live my life.
I didn’t have severe POTS but I had moderate symptoms.
When I stood up from standing my feet would turn red - the blood was pooling.
Also my pulse would race upon standing too.
I also would sway back and forth when I was standing.
It did get better with treatment - I haven’t felt those symptoms in a long time.
I used the Eliptical for excercise.
