    I posted this yesterday on the autonomia/cardio board as I didn't see this board. You might find it interesting:

    I've recently read about a thiamine deficiency or inability to properly utilize thiamine as causing autonomia, POTS and other ailments. Here are a couple of links:

    I first started reading about thiamine, and its link to energy, here:
    http://www.prohealth.com/library/showarticle.cfm?libid=18187

    I have CFS, not FM, and I think I have mild POTS. I didn't tolerate high doses of thiamine but did okay on 50 mg. So if one were going to try taking high doses, I'd suggest starting slowly, 100 mg. at a time.

    Thanks, uk. I did read a lot about thiamine recently along the same lines, I read the article about the person taking a very high dose of thiamine and getting her energy back. Actually I tried thiamine but could only tolerate 50-100 mg. But I don't have FM either, I do have CFS.

    But - it was new information for me when I read that a thiamine deficiency, or an inability to properly use thiamine, could be a contributing factor in POTS. So that's why I posted this.
