    Recognizing Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome

    Pavlik, Daniel MSPAS, PA-C; Agnew, Donna MSPAS, PA-C, DFAAPA; Stiles, Lauren JD; Ditoro, Rachel MSPAS, PA-C

    Abstract
    This article describes the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, diagnosis, and management of postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), a potentially debilitating autonomic disorder that can have many causes and presentations. POTS can be mistaken for panic disorder, inappropriate sinus tachycardia, and chronic fatigue syndrome. Clinician suspicion for the syndrome is key to prompt patient diagnosis and treatment.

    I tried clicking on the link but it doesn't work. Maybe just a temporary issue?

    Neurologist told me today that POTS is usually caused by SMALL FIBER NEUROPATHY(SFN) and only mentioned that is present in Parkinsons patients :rolleyes:

    I think SFN is an area i would love to see more investigation in with regard to ME, POTS and FM.

    I cannot get this article to open on my phone when I click the PDF link but maybe it will work on regular computer once I am home. Am very interested in the link between POTS and paraneoplastic syndromes. Thanks for posting it!

    @Groggy Doggy my phone is telling me I have to install "Google Drive" when I click on your link but then it doesn't let me. I need to update this phone. Am pretty sure I will be able to read the article once I get home tomorrow.

    Thank you anyway!!!

    I tried this link on my computer and it didn't say anything about Google Drive so it must be something with your phone. I think you will easily download it when you get home. It is just a PDF.

    @Gingergrrl if you have an iPhone, try using Safari (instead of Google) as your browser. I used Safari and then was prompted to open the file with iBooks..

    @Groggy Doggy I just wanted to let you know that your link worked easily on my home computer and I was able to download the article just now but have not read it yet. Thanks again!

    @mango thanks for this article. I've only just realized I have POTS-like (or POTS-lite) issues. The article notes mast cell involvement. I've resumed royal jelly as mast cell stabilizer, and may be seeing some improvement.

    Thanks and I am planning to post an update (not here) but in the other thread on paraneoplastic syndromes b/c that seems like the most fitting place. Will hopefully be able to to do that tomorrow.
