POTS, more common than you think
POTS, or Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, is a condition that most doctors will dismiss as anxiety, when in fact, it is a medical condition causing dysautonomia. 70 million worldwide may be suffering from this condition, but it has become more common as a clinical finding in Long COVID. POTS is a common neurocardiovascular and represents up to 32% of all sycope cases. Symptoms can range from dizziness, fatigue, tachycardia, shortness of breath, GI issues, and neurogenic pain.
