Many symptoms POTS: Orthostatic intolerance, marginal low blood pressure, with lack of appropriate sympathetic charge with position change can cause many symptoms: fatigue, fuzzyheadedness, headaches, restless sleep, GI complaints, very delayed if no recovery from exercise, cold hands/feet, and wooziness if not faintness with standing. Muscle aching with trigger points can also occur. Thus pots is felt causal.
