    Low resting heart rate w/ POTS #POTS #lowheartrate #PostrualOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome

    I’m so confused… I have pots, like my heart rate spikes 50+ bpm when I stand up. However my resting heart rate is 45 bpm. I’m just worried b/c i’m about to start Corlanor (Ivabridine) which is going to lower my heart rate even more 😬???

    Instead of working on my homework because my brain was too stressed to even attempt to do math, yesterday I cleaned and organized and de-cluttered my room quite a bit. Unfortunately I am now completely out of spoons today and am having to catch up on work.

    But, something good came out of it. I organized my plant area and now have a pretty little set up by the window.

    Those plants I’ll need to repot soon, but it’s cute for now! I also have roses from my girlfriend, and stones/crystals from my girlfriend and friends.

    But now I’m exhausted, out of all motivation and attempting to grudgingly get coursework done that my brain is not down for.

    Ugh. I wish I just had like 5 more spoons every day than I normally do. I’d get so much more done like walk up and down the stairs.

    I’m so exhausted.

    Oh and my heart rate has been above 110 since 5am when I woke up and I’ve been sitting almost this whole time. I’ve clicked my heart monitor button 11 times this morning.

    Update with me

    i am doing good.. I’m in a “flare up” with my POTS. And my body constantly hurts from my JHS. I’m always extremely tired but I’m doing good. I’m still trying to figure out what things helps my symptoms and trying to make friends that understand a little bit.

    My Revelation Under an Anja Light Meditation #POTS

    A thought I had in a meditative state about 4 weeks before my diagnoses:

    "There is not a date on when I will be 'back to normal' I am on a journey to find what my real normal is. I am living my normal right now, this right here is the life I am carving out, I am not waiting to 'feel better' I am better. I was going nowhere and had no concept of it, now I am waking up to what I truly want in life. I am here, this is my journey and this is my life. There is no going back I am moving forward to be the best version of myself I can be"
