About PoTS UK
Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (PoTS) can be a life altering and debilitating health condition. Simply standing up can be a challenge for affected people as their body is unable to adjust to gravity. PoTS is due to an abnormal response by the autonomic (automatic) nervous system and is characterised by orthostatic intolerance (the development of symptoms when upright that are mostly relieved by lying down). Symptoms include palpitations, lightheadedness, fatigue, sweating, nausea, fainting and headaches, and are associated with a persistant increase in heart rate from the lying to upright position.
PoTS UK - at the heart of beating PoTS
PoTS UK was founded by a group of healthcare professionals with PoTS who recognised the need to increase awareness of this condition.
We educate and support patients, family, friends and medical professionals within the United Kingdom about this widely unrecognised and misdiagnosed condition by sharing up to date evidence and resources. We work with healthcare professionals and other charities in the UK and abroad, and advocate for our members by seeking better NHS services, more research, and targeted treatments for people with PoTS.
