Mary - thanks for the tip on the NDRF site-looked up POTS and the symptoms are very similar. I will ask my doc. to explore this. Symptoms have been really bad, several times a day lasting from 45min. to hours on end. It seems symptoms got worse after the flu and never got better. before the flu, symptoms came sporadically - after a heavy meal, when really hot, when low blood sugars, or just out of the blue. After an episode I am really wiped out. Will continue to push docs to explore POTS and dysautonomia. Thank you for the great insight, I just want to feel normal again! What helps you make it thru?
