I posted a while back have been suffering for quite some time with lots of symptoms I've had all the tests done and now been ruled out for Addison's disease but have been diagnosed with postural tachardia syndrome or POTS for short which explains the fainting, very low blood pressure, constant dizziness, gut problems, very bad fatigue and joint pain I've been suffering for so long with.
I'm relived to finally have a diagnosis and don't feel I'm going mad any more. I've been prescribed Fludrocortisone 50mg at the moment to help with my symptoms I understand this medication is also used with people that suffer with Addison's disease I'm very scared to take the tablets after reading things online and I'm worried about the mention of weight gain. I would be very grateful if anyone taking this medication could please let me know their experiences?
I understand I need to take it and it should help me feel much better as currently in bed bound at 26 can't work and can barely stand for a minute without getting very dizzy however I can't help being worried and would appreciate any advice. Thanks so much for listening xx
