I've been living with terrible symptoms of POTS for almost two years now. I've joined this to hopefully get some support and answers because I've come to a REALLY depressed point in my journey where I'm not even sure if going on is worth it anymore. I would honestly say that I have a "mild" form of it at the moment because I do not faint, thankfully. And I'm also not as ill as I have been at times. BUT I suffer from ongoing, never ending dizziness/lightheadedness/pre syncope. I'm just so scared that things are never going to improve and I can't go on like this. I live in Michigan, and have not seen ONE doctor who understands, or knows where I'm coming from. I'm on no medicines besides Ativan as needed ( which is EVERY DAY ) for panic attacks. My anxiety is really out of control because feeling dizzy and sick scares me into panic attacks all the time. So I guess I have a few questions here... Is there any hope of things getting better? I feel like I'm more likely to get worse. Is anyone on Zoloft? My doctor wants me to take it and get off Ativan which I also want to do but I'm afraid of the side effects... I don't want it to make my POTS worse... Or my anxiety worse which I heard it can do it the first couple weeks... I have little to no family / friend support and I'm honestly just down to last straws that I think I can handle... I've tried talking to the friends I do have but nothing and nobody can help... If I can never be independent and healthy again I don't know what I can do.
