After a long time of suffering with fainting, constant diziness, palpitations, very low blood pressure, fatigue, gut problems and joint issues I've been diagnosed with POTS.
I'm relieved to finally have a diagnosis and an explanation for all my symptoms don't feel like I'm going mad any more but i now feel a bit lost and scared.
I'm currently bed bound at home can't work, can barely stand for a minute without feeling dizzy. I've been prescribed Fludrocortisone to take daily 50mg I understand this is a steroid I'm very scared of the side effects and the possibility of weight gain so feel anxious to take the tablets although I know they should help me, I also don't really know what to do now I don't feel I have any advice of support on how I'm supposed to manage my condition.
I would be very grateful if anyone could please let me know their experience with this medication and life with POTS if possible please? Thanks for listening xx
