I would just like to say that I started suffering with POTS when I was 18. It came completely out of the blue as I had never fainted before! It took 18 months to diagnose, in which time I struggled to get into school and could hardly work I felt soooo ill & exhausted. When I was diagnose I was put onto Midrodine which completely changed my life. Although things aren't perfect i no longer feel sick and exhausted everyday and I have only had 3 faints or near faint in the past five months, which is amazing for me!

The Charity Stars (stars.org.uk) have been a great support.
