Im pretty active and have been most of my life (F, 17) but since being diagnosed with PoTS the doctor advised me to keepup exercise but to ease myself in and out of each session and not aim for competitive levels of fitness. I take a martial arts class once a week for an hour and the cardio isnt an issue but rolls and grounwork often make me dizzy due to the swift changes in position and orientation.
At the moment i am increasing my cardio levels and have started a monthly press up challenge (beggining Feb1st) to do 50 pressups a day. My mum is worried as she thinks this is more intense than what the doctor advised, can anyone else with PoTS let me know how much/how intense they have been able to exercise and whether it has had a detrimental effect on the symptoms of the condition?
