What Is Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)?

Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) is an autonomic dysfunctional condition in which the body’s autonomic nervous system doesn’t work the way it should. The autonomic nervous system controls things like blood pressure, heart rate, digestion and much more – in other words, the systems we don’t normally have to think about. The autonomic system allows for adjustments when the body changes position. For example, when a person moves from a sitting position to standing up, the autonomic system regulates blood flow to various parts in the body. For one, this prevents lightheadedness and passing out..

When someone is suffering from POTS, the nervous system seems to short circuit, the heart beats faster and the blood flow to the brain isn’t regulated as usual.

Symptoms of POTS may include:

  • A racing heart
  • Feeling lightheaded
  • Dizziness and fainting
  • Chest pains
  • Nausea
  • Shaking

POTS symptoms are most commonly noticed when standing or changing position. However, weakness, headaches, an inability to focus, abdominal complaints, and insomnia can still indicate POTS, even if experienced without changing position.

What Causes POTS?

The onset of POTS has been linked as a complication after an infection or vaccine, as well. It is believed to be an autoimmune issue.  The vaccines most commonly associated with POTS are the human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV), the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, and the flu vaccine.
