    LDN definitely helped me, but my pots is the one thing it hasn't touched

    Dunno. I can take showers now, but I'm not sure why.

    Don't know how/whether LDN, which increased my stamina, related to POTS. I consider myself w/ POTS-lite. Just wanted to point out that there's some suggestion of an autoimmune and mast cell involvement. Mast cell stabilizers have helped me. Acupuncturist also recommended schizandra tea, which seems to have really helped stabilize BP.

    Here's where I read about these connections:
