Good collection of information for those newly diagnosed. Only wish we had more for those of us older patients 20-50 age range. Truly believe it is hereditary and research should continue to look there. Overall great read to sort out the mess of what POTS is.
Thank Heavens for this book! I was recently diagnosed …,
Thank Heavens for this book! I was recently diagnosed with dysautonomia and POTS after living with it for nearly 55 years. I had no idea I had such a thing; never heard of it. But then after I was diagnosed I found I still had no idea how to LIVE with it. Then I had a crisis and found myself on the floor….again. That was when I began to research this topic and found Amazon had books and even medical assist items for this. When the book came I sat right down and devoured it! Now, I know I can have a life again, that it is rare, but manageable with a few tips and tricks listed in the book. Thank you so much for writing a book that lay people can understand. I plan on buying another for my doctor and then more copies for all those docs who did not know what I had and called me crazy!!

I had already read a lot of this information over the last couple of years, but it was a good refresher for me and would be good for someone newly diagnosed. I was really blown away by how much effort the author put into understanding his niece’s condition. Great uncle! I read a lot of these short Kindle ebooks especially on health issues and this one was a lot better writing quality and content than many I have tried.
Great information on POTS
I have a friend who has been diagnosed with POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome), or dysautonomia. I had absolutely no idea what this was or how I could possibly be supportive, so I went searching for more information. I came across this very detailed and informative book by Frederick Earlstein. There is great information here about what POTS is, signs and symptoms, causes and treatment for it and tips for living with POTS. I particularly appreciated the information on living with POTS and the chapter on research on resources to get additional information. A very well-written and well-organized book on an elusive disorder.
Excellent book and easy to read for a medical information book yet has tons of information
A very helpful and easy to read book. Does a good job of covering signs and symptoms, causes and treatments, and living with POTS. Much better than most medical information books… highly recommended!
