After getting diagnosed with POTS last year, I thought that was going to be the end of the mystery of why I feel so sick. But, just as life happens to unfold, this was indeed not the end.
Once I started treatment, things got a bit better. I could work again and I was only fainting a few times a week, if that.
However, recently, things have gotten worst than ever. I'm back to fainting multiple times a day, except this time it has left me almost completely bed bound. I lost my job, my hobbies, my ability to even shower without someone close by.
It's been hard.
But even worst is I am having bad abdominal pain, constipation, vomiting episodes, and more GI tract symptoms which I've never had before.
I heard that POTS has many comobilities, and I fear that this might be one developing.
I am trying to hold out and change my lifestyle but as the days get worst I fear I may have to go seek urgent help.
