Endometriosis can cause heavy bleeding.

Are you on any meds? Corticosteroids cause this, it happened to me when I was taking prednisone for my asthma.

my blood pressuse was 95/56 yesterday and I was seeing spots and feeling very dizzy and super tired. That is my sign to get some salt in me immediately!

Are the rashes like bright pink/red like someone just took a hunk of your skin and pinched it? That's what I get on my legs and stomach and it's due to blood pooling in my extremities instead of reaching my heart, lungs, and brain.

Can you do a little test? Take your heart rate lying down, 2 min after sitting upright, then 5 min while standing still.

If you have an iPhone there is a free app called heart rate which will allow you to do this very easily.

I have just been diagnosed with dystautonomia subtype POTS and I have many of your symptoms. Often I will freak out because I think a spider is crawling across my feet, my hands and fingertips tingle, I'm dizzy and almost faint while standing, and a host of other problems.

If your heart rate doesn't increase over 30bmp while standing or get to 120 or higher you don't have this but it rule out a piece of the puzzle for you. Mine will often be over 130 while standing within the first 5 min.

My electrophysiologist mentioned it. He said it would be ideal but not available here. I'm currently taking fludrocortisone to increase my blood volume and he's hoping in turn that will help with the IST I have a follow up in April
