In brief: POTS syndrome?

Look up pots syndrome.
It is rare, but in a young person with unexplained orthostatic hypotension it should be considered. It is associated with migraine. For orthostatic hypotension, wearing compression stockings and avoiding getting up from a seated r lying position too fast, can help.
