    Hi, am having scary racing heart/raised BP upon any exertion, wondering if anyone knows whether there are any autonomic specialists/POTS specialists in Sydney? Dx POTS as BP dropped on standing and HR went up 30bpm, but after a while BP goes up and up. I was lucky enough to have a 2 year remission from this nightmare, but the last year and a half have relapsed, with the past week sinking back to being housebound due to the POTS. Thanks if any Aussies know of anyone!

    Sorry to hear that you're not well. Unfortunately I'm not in Sydney. You could try this Facebook group "Good Australian Doctors for ME/CFS/FM/EDS/POTS/OI":

    Thanks AV! I don't use Facebook but have just joined and hopefully through my foggy brain I can work it out and get some recommendation/s. Am managing it better past couple of days by doing NOTHING . . . but I am sure this will lead to deconditioning . . . vicious circle! Will also ask my GP whether salt loading is ok with hyper POTS. Do any members have any experience with that? I constantly crave salt . . .
