Marijuana And Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome
Fast heart standing: Pots means fast heart beating (tachycardia) when standing (postural) after arising (orthostatic).
Increase heart rate: Pots is a common orthostatic syndrome. The heart rate increases higher than expected when there is a change in posture. The symptoms can include dizziness, weakness, anxiety, tremors and palpitations. The symptoms can be mild or severe. There is a higher incidence in women. The cause is not clear and possibly multifactorial. There are several treatment options.See 2 more doctor answers
See syndrome details: Pots is defined as an increase in heart rate on sitting or standing. This is caused my autonomic dysfunction. Please see link below for more information. Http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/postural_orthostatic_tachycardia_syndrome.
Anxiety is: Associated with POTS but not necessarily a cause of POTS.
What is the difference between postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and general anxiety disorder?
Orthostatism: Well... Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome has an origin in the autonomic nervous system and is unrelated to anxiety. A general anxiety disorder is not a cause of orthostatic tachycardia. The two entities while unrelated can theoretically coexist in the same individual.See 1 more doctor answer

I have postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. Will midodrine stop as much blood falling when I stand and more return upwards?
Midodrine raises BP: Yes, midodrine is an alpha1-agonist which increases arteriolar and venous tone resulting in a rise in standing, sitting, and supine systolic and diastolic blood pressure in patients with orthostatic hypotension. You should see a cardiologist for specific doses and to assess drug responsiveness.
Can I give blood when I'm high risk for fainting? I have an ans disorder - postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and have hr up to 160-170bpm.
Best to avoid risk.: Although technically you could give blood, you would be putting yourself at risk for a fainting spell due to your autonomic syndrome. What I mean by that is that there is nothing wrong with your blood, but decreasing your blood volume would increase your risk of having a fainting spell. Do your blood bank phlebotomist a favor and keep your blood to yourself!See 1 more doctor answer
Male 22 postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome hr goes to 110 standing. Will midodrine bring it down some and feel better stood up? Hate this : (
Autonomic condition: Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (pots) is a condition that is characterized by an abnormal heart rate rise (>30 beats per minute) with standing. The cause is unknown. Patients may present with dizziness or fainting, but often have non specific symptoms of fatigue and generalized weakness. The treatment is supportive and individualized. There is no specific cure.See 1 more doctor answer
With difficulty: This is often difficult to treat successfully. First, you need a tilt table test to confirm the diagnosis. If confirmed, volume expansion by eating a high salt diet and drinking plenty of fluids may help. Beta blockers, Fludrocortisone (florinef) and midodrine (proamatine) are used with variable success. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
POTS: Read this: http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pmc/articles/PMC2600095/
Several things: First, one should undergo several basic tests, including a careful recording of ones history, check of ones blood pressure sitting and standing, blood tests to look for identifiable medical causes of the syndrome and a search for commonly associated medical conditions. Treatment can begin with a mild tilt of ones bed to keep the head of the bed 6 inches higher than the foot; increase oral fluids.
Yes: Unless there is another underlying cause, this condition usually resolves itself over time?
POTS: Read this abstract: http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/25546918 http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/25829642
Any: All cardiologists should be aware. An electophysiogist is more likely to help.See 1 more doctor answer
