I don't seem to suffer from the most common POTS symptoms, such as lightheadedness and fainting, but looking at the DINETS reference page I do have a lot of the other symptoms. They seem to be particularly severe if I consume inflammatory foods.
Hmmm... I'm positive that inflammation is a big issue for me. I tend to get chest pains if I eat highly inflammatory foods such as Wheat, Sugar, Corn and Vegetable Oils. I also have RLS which is generally seen as an inflammatory condition. But no matter how clean of a diet I try to maintain, some symptoms still persist. It seems deeply rooted and hard to rectify, in my case at least.
Do you have any other anti-inflammatory suggestions?
I decided to take acidophilus after delving into the oxalate universe. Both acidophilus and bifidum are said to lower oxalates. It worked
CB produces vit K2 in the gut, which directs calcium to the bones. We have large calcium oxalate deposits in soft tissues, and the calcium (bound to oxalate) mobilization causes mucosal irritation and joint pain flares.
