POTS

Who thinks at all about the autonomic nervous system? Me, that’s who. Seems as if I have postural tachycardia syndrome, probably caused by the Ehlers Danlos syndrome. At the end of the month I’ll have more tests but at my regular PCP’s office my resting heart rate is around 70, which zooms to 125+ when I go vertical. This makes me very tired because it simulates running around all day.

Seems like I have a few options, until treatment is figured out:

1. Learn to fly HORIZONTALLY like Superman.
2. Lay in bed HORIZONTALLY like Mrs. Diego Rivera with a notebook suspended over me.
3. Become a head on a tray like in The Brain That Wouldn’t Die.

In better news, I am doing well in physical therapy.
