Helpful to remember when you’re having a POTS spell. The squat can be done assisted by a wall or chair. Adjust as needed.
Squats tend to do the opposite of help me but the leg crossing one has been helpful!!
I don’t know what POTS is but maybe this will help someone
POTS is short for postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome!
it’s a condition in which standing up causes things like dizzy spells / greyed vision / collapsing / weakness / fainting / difficulty breathing, etc.
mostly because of bad circulation and low blood pressure.
If standing up makes your head rush, then doing the above should help!
Holy freaking crap. I have NEVER seen a POTS resources post, I don’t think, and definitely not in cute comic form. (It’s a super rare, obscure thing so there’s just not much help out there.) And yes, it really sucks. Thank you so much!
