What is postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome?
Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) is an autonomic disorder that often develops in teenagers, although younger children have been known to be diagnosed as well. This condition is a shift in the volume of blood throughout your body, which occurs when one stands up from a lying or sitting position.
Those diagnosed with POTS often experience migraines, poor sleep, nausea, general aches and pains, and brain fog. We've setup a video series to help those diagnosed with POTS to overcome some of these symptoms through lifestyle choices.
