  1. Your symptoms sound EXACTLY like my daughter that has P.O.T.S. She has extreme fatigue (can sleep for 16+ hours straight and wake up tired), heart racing, stomach issues, low B.P, dizzy, lightheaded and nearly fainting, foggy, and always cold. If she gets a simple cold she is like a noodle on the couch and can't recover quickly. It is all typical in P.O.T.S. She has had many highs and lows over the past two years and during the cold winter months she is exhausted. We almost home-schooled her last year. This year the school is working with us and she has special permission to sleep in when it is needed and they are working around her illness. At times, she is happy, bubbly and normal. But if she over-does it with her friends, she pays the price over the next few days with extreme fatigue and all of the other symptoms. Hang in there. There are many others out there just like you!
