There's days I don't understand when I feel so alive and ready to conquer the world. My mind keeps thinking, I come up with a great idea but then I forget what the great idea was. Other days I can't get up and feel sluggish and just want to sleep all day. Then the fun days I get up and start cleaning, organizing, planning, wiping things down around the home and it feels so good inside like a just woke up with all this energy inside that needs to burn down. And by the middle of the day, I'm so worn off and ready to lay down. #Anxiety is when you just can't stop moving or worrying. #Adrenaline is having too much energy in your blood. #MoodDisorders #Mania is one of the things that can be good or bad. Some last and some don't. #StayStrong #youarenotalone

Pots and being startled #LivingWithPOTS #POTSLife

Does an adrenaline dump occur when you’re startled?
Does anyone else despise being startled or yelled at because it makes them feel nauseous and shaky for hours? Is this normal for pots? #Adrenaline #LivingWithPOTS

I guess i made a wrong decision in saying yes i get anxiety when my new nurse practitioner asked me. I didn't think after she wouldn't take me seriously. Doesn't everyone in this new age get anxiety? I am not talking about that i know anxiety lady. I'm tired of my body constantly telling me to go go go GOOOOO. even when i sleep. When im sitting eating. When im smoking ganga. It happens always. I've always had it. I am a forever energizer bunny that never stops. Never been diagnosed of course, who's going to believe an unsure 25 year old woman? Not many i know that much. It's getting to the point where i feel others are getting annoyed of me talking about myself but like no one gets it. They just think im a weirdo, even my family. Idk its easy to give up when no one gets it and like is it going to keep getting worse? Am i ever going to be in a calm state? Will my body ever be calm? I thought when i was younger i would grow out of this "hyperness" its just honestly so tiring at times when other times it helps me get shit done. Back to my nurse practitioner story before i interrupted myself. I told her i might have POTS and she shrugged it off going oh yeahhh a lot of people get that and it comes akd goes. She didn't even want to do a test. Made it seem unimportant. Just like everyone else and oh i had to pay her for that? I just want some understanding in how my own body works. Some people might think i am a hypochondriac but i just go to things that might fit what's up with my body. I know my body shouldn't always be in this state and yet it always is. Yes i can do party tricks. Yes i pass the beighton test. But it is a matter of someone believing in me and actually figuring it out. Which i don't have the money to even figure out if i do have well something i guess. But what importance is it if everyone is dealing with their own issues.

Does adrenaline/exercise cause vertigo with anyone else?

Last night the paramedics had to come and take me to the ER because of dizzy/room spinning and ringing in my left ear and projectile vomiting. I was totally coherent but I couldn’t move without becoming violently sick. I always get a ringing in ears and dizziness every day when I begin my workouts and also if I get too scared or angry etc. This is the first time I have vomited, the last episode I almost vomited. The nausea lasted two or more hours after the vertigo had stopped. Has anyone else experienced this? #POTS #vestiblularmigraine #Vertigo #Adrenaline #Dizziness #MAV #Stroke
