IamA 21 year old girl suffering from an incurable and sometimes untreatable condition called POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) uodates and more, AMA!
Hello again everyone. I posted this link last year and I thought I would give everyone an update.
It turns out I also probably have lupus or something like it. They are running the test this month. Since the last post I have gotten better, but there are still many issues and I have to go to the doctors four times a year. I just wanted to raise awareness again and am willing to answer any questions.
Edit: Here are a list of my symptoms include: Lightheadedness, Fainting or near fainting, Palpitations, Tremors, Shortness of breath, Chest pain, Multiple stomach issues, Insomnia, Tachycardia, Exercise intolerance, Anxiety, Flushing, Blood pooling in limbs, Intolerance to heat, Feeling cold all over, Low blood pressure upon standing, Cognitive impairment (aka difficulties concentrating and brain fog), Hypovolemia (low blood volume), and muscle pain. I also have EDS.
Edit2: Feel free to PM me if you want! Also sorry about the title.
Edit3: Feel free to stop by /r/chronicpain. They are very welcoming and I go by there often :)
