I think its incorrect, many people have orthostatic hypotension and have pots. They are not mutually exclusive.
Every definitionof POTS i ever read says "increase of 30 in HR in absence of orthostatic hypotension". What am I missing?
interesting: i had very high all antibodies that are found in NOH not only POTS, i never fainted but in tilt i had slight drop in BP .. highest was 17/10, as I had at the same time hypertension, that was considered normal drop, (because criteria for OH in hypertension is 30/20, and for normal BP is 20/10), I was dehydrated then a bit, all other times my BP dropped a bit, 10-5,
but after IVIG my BP never drops again on tilt, i had 5 tilts in 1 year - think I'm guinea pig for them - it always goes up a big for 10/6 or so, and my antibodies panel changed a lot, with much more negatives.
