I was diagnosed with dysautonomia (POTS more specifically) a few months ago and have had symptoms for two and a half years. My dizziness upon standing, increase in heart rate upon standing, lightheadedness, and fatigue led to the diagnosis. I'm wondering if Addison's could be causing my POTS symptoms. When I first got sick I had terrible salt cravings. I was eating almost a whole bottle of capers everyday. I would spread olive tapenade on my toast every morning too. I sweat a lot and have trouble regulating my body temperature. I have low blood pressure as well. I lost a lot of weight (65 pounds) after I got sick and had trouble eating enough because I had a very low appetite. I felt weak and shaky a lot of the time when I was at my worst.
I don't think I have any skin darkening. I've had blood tests done and I'm wondering if this is something the doctors could have missed. What type of doctor should I see to investigate this? Is it worth investigating?
