    I have kept improving from my POTS and I drove yesterday after church. I also go to church (large place) with no wheelchair now. I can walk so much more and do so much more now.

    Has anyone else been doing better? I sure hope so.

    Little things make a big difference when your sick with POTS. So fantastic stuff!

    I tend to get pots in flare ups and then it calms down

    Great news, Sally! :balloons: Congratulations! :balloons:

    A convertible bug -- that's SO you! :D

    My daughter went on a 12 mile hike over rough terrain on Saturday. :victory:

    There are PWME getting a lot better. It gives hope to the rest of us who are still fighting. Thanks, Sally!

    That's a lot of improvement Sally, from having trouble just lifting your head to driving. Great news! Do you know what aspects of your treatment have helped so much with POTS? I could use all the help I can get with it too.

    Glad to hear you are improving :)

    I think my POTS is improving too..but I dont know if anything is doing is causing the improvement. I think thou it may be a change from POTS into having more orthostatic hypertension then I had previously... if I get one of these I dont tend to get the other at the same time.

    Tristen, so glad you are improving. My bug is Blue, called Heaven Blue. I love the name of the paint. Her name is Bluebonnet (State flower of Texas!)
