Tomorrow is Rare Disease Day!  This is an article about Ehler’s Danlos and POTS.  I have POTS so I found it interesting.
Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome EDS Awareness
EDS is very highly linked to PoTs. PoTs is a form of dysautomnia which is a condition that causes the central nervous system to not work as it should. PoTs causes very horrible symptoms such as: dizziness, headaches, fast heart rate and a low blood pressure. Some people have it very serious, where they are permanently in a wheelchair, as when they stand it causes them to faint. The symptoms are mostly brought in from standing and are often relieved by laying down. PoTs can be medicated once diagnosed which can help regulate the blood pressure and sustain the heart rate -Reecy
