About


The author of this blog (me) has 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.

This blog is 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.

More information will be available on Dr. Levine's protocol when 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 this blog.  You can get updates on this blog including notification when I post Dr.Levine's study by clicking "Follow" on this page (upper right)
