POTS/Dysautonomia

Two creative and amusing videos about POTS/Dysautonomia:

Good job, girls!

It is not fun nor funny to have POTS, but what a good way to educate people about it.

Migraines can be a symptom of POTS.

Anna cannot tolerate high temperature--her autonomic systems goes haywire when she gets hot. Heat is the worst for her, for triggering autonomic symptoms.

I really don't tolerate temperatures above 80 F very well, I start feeling sick; over 90 F, I feel sick; and over 100 F, I feel very sick. Where sick = general discomfort, HA, and/or nausea.

Dehydration + Bright Sunshine + being Overheated = Migraine; usually with Nausea, but not always.

Each of these individually may, or may not, bring on a migraine; but all three together definately will trigger a migraine.
