Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS): Is It Causing Your Fatigue and What You Can Do About It

POTS is a condition that can be associated with other chronic conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Anxiety, irritable bowel symptoms, and Lyme Disease.  In today’s broadcast we will discuss how POTS can be an independent cause of fatigue, summarize the current treatments for this condition, but also expand upon new research demonstrating an autoimmune component that may be driving POTS.  Please enjoy
