    Can anyone recommend some good articles to print out & give a friend of mine whose doctor thinks that if you are not passing out all the time, then you can't have POTS. Preferably some that have suggestions about possible treatments.

    I would suggest www.oiresource.com or Dr Bells'site. Dr. Bell may be on Youu Tube about it. I seem to remember he discovered all the differnt kinds of OI.

    Try this. I am on this forum. Lots of information on this page. Good information about different forms of Dysautonomia. I have added a couple of links for you.

    Passing out, or Syncope is not needed with POTS. That is totally diff. About 30% of POTS patients have Syncope. Low blood pressure is separate.

    You rarely find good info about supplements for POTS/CFS. Integrative docs can help.

    The Johns Hopkins handout on Orthostatic Intolerance (both POTS and NMH) is available in a PDF here - http://www.cfids.org/webinar/cfsinfo2010.pdf . It includes treatment suggestions.

    And here's the web page from the "Research 1st" web site (from the CFIDS Association) - http://www.research1st.com/2011/06/19/the-outs-and-ins-of-oi/

    One extract from this web page:
