Can anybody give me any information about POTS in children. My 11 year old son has just been diagnosed with it. The cardio tells me to give him a high salt diet, raise the head of his bed, drink lots of water, exerise and assure him he is going to be okay when having symptoms. He has been of school for nearly 4 weeks now, i pick school work up for him every couple days. His cardio wants him back at school and so do i but how, when his heart is racing, feeling dizzy, headaches and cant concentrate???
