    Ive been searching but finding it hard and need inputs. :(

    Doctors here dont really know about pots. So is there a website or something that seems official, credible that can make them take it seriously/pay attention. (That can be used worldwide because im in asia).

    I think the one from mayoclinic? But is there something that seems more credible and official/worldwide. :confused:

    Because i try to tell them about it using an article but theyre close minded and dont really acknowledge about it.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Try a cardiologist, from my experience they are much more familiar with POTS.

    Can you give them something from DINET or Dysautonomia International?

    @AdamS ive tried to but the cardiologist not familiar with it. And its not in his study. It seems that he doesnt seem to really believe it. Because i give a paper of an article and he said i read too much on things online which some of that could be misleading and i worry too much.

    So i wonder if i go to other doctor what can i do to convince him more about the disease.

    @Gingergrrl which one?

    @Cheesus thanks ill try.
