Why have I never heard of POTs before joining here? Is it called something different in the UK? I have been to doctors and physios and not one has mentioned this to me. I have felt faint randomly since I was about 16 and passed out several times now, sometimes after exercise, after pain, standing at gigs.. and doctors etc have checked blood sugar level, and it's always been fine. I more recently have assumed it was linked to dehydration but have made a conscious effort to drink more at work and definitely feel the faint episodes have got more frequent if anything! But.. I eat barely any salt, I don't enjoy it in food, and I drink a lot of sugary caffeinated drinks.. not quite energy drink level but still not great. Why have I never heard of POTs before?!!?
