is a chronic illness It is defined as a form of Dysautonomia or malfunction of the autonomic nervous system The autonomic nervous system controls all of our bodys involuntary actions such as but not limited to respiration, blood pressure, digestion, body temperature regulation, etc. As such, when one has a breakdown of the autonomic nervous system, multiple systems are affected and multiple symptoms are present Symptoms of POTS can include the following tachycardia, orthostatic intolerance, low blood pressure upon standing, fainting or near fainting, fatigue, general weakness, visual disturbances, insomnia, nausea, joint pain especially lower back, neck and wrists inability to regulate ones body temperature, cold hands and feet, chest pains, etc Symptoms can range from mild to debilitating Symptoms wax and wane and can change at any minute Each person, who has POTS has a unique presentation and therefore can have one to all of the aforementioned symptoms Dr Blair Grubb, a clinical cardiac electrophysiology and world famous POTS expert, says POTS patients use about three times energy to stand than that of a healthy person It is as if they are running in place all the time Activities such as showering, climbing stairs and eating meals can further magnify symptoms The quality of life of a patient with POTS is analogous to a person who suffers from congestive heart failure People who have POTS often experience exacerbated symptoms when going from a supine position to an upright position A person is said to have POTS if their heart rate increases by 30 beats per minute or when going from a sitting to standing position or a heart rate of or exceeding 120 beats per minute BPM thus POTS is measurable and quantifiable Some patients also experience a drop in blood pressure by 20 BPM or when going from a supine to an upright position Within 10 minutes of standing Many others will actually have an increase in blood pressurePOTS is often triggered by Strep, mononucleosis, trauma, diabetes, thyroid condition, onset of puberty, pregnancy, etc Mayo Clinic believes that POTS is common than once believed It is estimated that 1 in 100 people have some form of this illness POTS can be triggered at any age but the most common age typically coincides with the onset of puberty and is often followed by a large growth spurt.Many people who have POTS search for years before a doctor who is familiar with the illness, diagnoses them properly By the time the patient gets the diagnosis they are often frustrated, depressed and have given up on the medical system Patients and their caregivers alike are relieved to finally have a real diagnosis but are now left to ride the Waves of Dysautonomia on their ownThe intention of this book is to serve as a lifeline for all POTS sufferers No patient with Dysautonomia should have to ride the turbulent waves of Dysautonomia alone, for in numbers there is enormous support and strength The patient who suffers from Dysautonomia is not alone it is irrefutable that together WE WILL STANDJodi Epstein Rhum was born and raised in IL She received her B.S in Education from the University of IL Jodi has four children,
