"I just completed a POTS study in Dallas , Texas . It is an exercise study in which they take you off all of your medications and put you on a specialized exercise regimen. It starts with all seated exercises like the cardio rowing machine, recumbent bike and swimming. It then moves you to the upright bike, elliptical, walking, and jogging. This is over a 3 month period.
4 months later, I do not have POTS. I knew this because I did not feel symptomatic but I now feel I can write about it because the tests confirmed what I had already known. I had a 2 hour standing test and a tilt test which all confirm this to be true."
