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.
This is an amazing read for anyone with POTS
This is an amazing read for anyone with POTS. I read it and got a better understanding. I was able to read it in one day and then gave it to my family members to read after I had read it and wrote side notes inside and highlighted the symptoms I have. I gave it to family members to help them understand and believe in the condition more, since they are skeptics. I also gave it to my Primary Care Doctor to read to help him understand it better as well. He has been next to me on this journey and we have both been learning as we go. Hopefully after reading this book he can spot POTS and related conditions in other patients faster, reducing diagnosis timing!

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!
Great for anyone new to the Dysautonomia world.
Easy to read, love it.

Great read if you are interested in POTS
Good book for general information on POTS. It breaks things down into specifics and easy to understand sections. Very thorough
Not a medical text, but a good, well-researched handbook for those needing information about this disorder. Saved me a lot of time searching for and collating this information myself.
Very Information and Thorough
This book is a must read if you have orthostatic hypotension, or POTS. The references are listed for additional reading including helpful websites.
Excellent book. Maybe a little too technical for the average reader like me.

Thank Heavens for this book!
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!!
