Scary: All symptoms point to a the fact that you are having some type of tachy-arrhythmia (fast abnormal heat rhythm). Given what you're describing, your body is not tolerating it very well so I suggest a trip to the closest ER or Urgent care center and would have another person drive or call 911. Read more

It should help: There is a long list of therapies and medications used in pots, partly because no single approach has been found to work in all patients, but one important component of treatment is regular exercise to improve cardiovascular conditioning. That, combined with increased fluid and salt intake, as well as medications as determined by your md will be your best bet to improve your symptoms. Read more

I trust you're not taking a medicine as tricky as verapamil to treat a number. Since you're exercising, and I take it have normal exercise tolerance without being interrupted by shortness of breath, I'd urge you to be thankful for good health. Read more
