Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)


Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) is a disorder characterized by a rapid increase in heart rate upon assuming an upright position. Symptoms include dizziness, lightheadedness, fatigue, and palpitations. POTS often affects young individuals, particularly women, and is associated with dysfunction in the autonomic nervous system, leading to difficulties in regulating blood pressure and heart rate. Treatment strategies typically involve lifestyle changes, medication, and physical therapy to manage symptoms and improve quality of life.
