Those with orthostatic intolerance- I.e. symptoms that get worse on standing such as nausea, dizziness, headache- please be aware that a negative tilt test does not exclude #PoTS. Dr Gupta of @YorkCardiology explains this beautifully and treats patients clinically- as all should.
More help for POTS is coming. Dysautonomia Intl.
Film producer Danielle Hinde, who has worked with everyone from Katy Perry to Childish Gambino, is working on a new film about #POTS, #dysautonomia & #LongCOVID. Here's a short clip from the upcoming film, featuring Danielle & Dr. Brent Goodman:
Is it possible to have POTS without dizziness? I have blood pooling and I have to use full body compression every waking hour but no dizziness. Without compression my function level decreases significantly.
Two days trying Brahmi (bacopa monnieri), and it works even better for me than the Butcher's Broom. I realize there is more than one possible cause for POTS, so it might not be the answer for everyone.
One of it's actions is it "appears to affect levels of several neuromodulators – chemical messengers that neurons release to signal to groups of other neurons (as well as other cells with certain receptors). Specifically, Bacopa Monnieri may activate choline acetyltransferase (an enzyme involved in acetylcholine synthesis) and inhibit acetylcholinesterase (an enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine) (1). Both of these actions raise brain levels of acetylcholine, a chemical with important roles in things like attention and memory."
