Mayo Clinic pediatric and adolescent physician Philip Fischer, M.D., introduces a patient diagnosed with postural tachycardia syndrome, more commonly known as POTS. To learn more about POTS or to request and appointment, visit http://www.mayoclinic.org/departments...
POTS is a rapid increase in heart rate that occurs when you stand. POTS is most common in girls between the age of 12 and 20. Symptoms include dizziness or passing out when rising from a seated position, fatigue, and nausea. POTS can sometimes be treated with the use of medications, but symptoms can also be reduced with diet and exercise.
