lliira: Fang from FF13 (Default)
So I think I may have figured out what's been going on with me for years, the health problem that throwing out my back ended up distracting from. I haven't gone to the doctor yet, but I have almost all the symptoms of POTS (I haven't fainted yet, though it's been close, and I don't think my legs change color.) I've been bouncing around thinking maybe it's chronic fatigue, maybe it's some horrible neurological thing, maybe it's thyroid (this is still the second-highest possibility), but POTS fits best.

I'm just scared of going to the doctor again because all my experiences with them since throwing out my back have been terrible and caused me harm. Otoh it looks like drugs aren't necessarily recommended for POTS, since so many patients have more adverse reactions to drugs than the general population (hi me) so I'll dodge that fear if that's it.
