In brief: P.O.T. S

P.O.T.S and lupus post pregnancy needs thorough evaluation and management due to associated symptoms of dizziness , near syncope , palpitations to name a few with changes in posture.
Lupus by itself needs careful evaluation and management by a rheumatologist due to its multi system involvement . With full understanding and proper management symptoms of p.O.T.S has better prognosis in younger pts.
