... pacemaker as I suffer with Bradycardia with vasavagol syncope I notice I am very dizzy in the morning but I also blackout a lot at night which does not seem right as most people with POTS only get the symptoms when standing? am I correct in this assumption?

I have been diagnosed with POTS failing all 5 of the tests including vasavagol syncope. Are you taking any Midrodine or compression hose? I found that if I put them on in the morning before getting out of bed and having the blood pool in my feet, it really helps. Also taking the Midrodine 15 min before getting out of bed helps my daughter who also has POTS. I have to fly for my work and the change in elevation cause extreme POTS symptoms. I take the Midrodine with the compression hose.and I take 1 liter of hydration IV therapy (I know not all persons can get that) and salt. I can't take the florinef. I still get adrelanine surges, but it helps with the extreme fatigue and the vomiting on the plane and after. I have to keep working to keep my insurance for Dr. Goodman at the Mayo Clinic so I push on.
