Pots And Oi

 I have a condition called Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome and Orthostatic Intolerance. Both conditions fall under the category of Dysautonomia: problems with the body's autonomic system. The conditions are not particulalry well known in the medical community and can be left undiagnosed in patients for years.


Sufferers can experience debilitating symptoms such as: inability to remain upright (unstable blood pressure) ,chest pain, IBS, migraines,visual disturbances such as spots, tunnel vision or white outs, muscle pain, exercise intolerance, and fatigue. For more information on these conditions go to potsrecovery.com.

I have a blog with a written record of my progress and response to a new treatment study for POTS, which does not involve medications, developed by Dr B. Levine and his research team in Texas. I cannot talk about what Dr. Levine's protocol exactly is until the study is published. Which is soon as the research was accepted for publication in the American Journal of Cardiology.  Dr. Levine has recently said he will forward a copy of the research to us once its published so I can post it on my blog SO STAY TUNED!!  See my blog at potsrecovery.com for info on what I can say.
