Hi.

Welcome to my blog.

My goal is to help provide EDS & Dysautonomia patients with resources to discuss with their healthcare team.

Coexisting Conditions to Look into with Your Doctor

Coexisting Conditions to Look into with Your Doctor

There are a lot of coexisting conditions that occur with POTS or EDS. This is not an exhaustive list, but it's a start (please comment with other conditions I should add)

  • If you have POTS, look into Ehler's Danlos Syndrome
    • Are you flexible? Are your friends shocked by how far you can move your fingers, elbows, knees, shoulders, etc.? Do you bruise easily? Do you bump into stuff a lot? See my initial post about the Beighton Score
  • If you have EDS, look into Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome
    • Do you get dizzy upon standing? Do you see black spots? Do you regularly get nauseous? Can you feel your heart racing? Are stairs your mortal enemy? See my initial post about the Tilt Table Test
