    Please leave it, @Isaiah 58:11 , it's good to be reminded of Dr Diana, I always forget about her. In fact, I didn't know she had started treating. I used to really enjoy watching her "Pretty Ill" videos.

    It seems that Dr Diana Driscoll theorizes that for those with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), the cause of their POTS is due to a combination of:

    • External Communicating Hydrocephalus
    • Chronic Cerebrospinal Venus Insufficiency
    • Mast Cell Disease

    Treatment of the above recommended by Dr Driscoll is:

    • Diamox (acetazolamide)
    • H1 and H2 inhibitors

    I presume this will only apply to EDS patients with POTS.

    I read the interview this week as well and thought it looked very interesting. I have EDS and MCAS and Lyme/M.E. It seems she has a clinic where they intensive study of the patient over 1 week. She also treats patients with chronic Lyme as there is a big overlap with EDS MCAS and Lyme.

    Not sure about the supplements yet as I haven't looked into them enough.
