Anybody Have Extreme Fluctuating Blood Pressure With High Heart Rate Week Before Period With Position Changes?

That recently started about two weeks ago. I passed out once in a chair. It wasn't very long and and haven't passed out since.

Glad you are getting tested for POTS. I found out I have POTS and it sucks! I had to increase my water and salt/electrolyte intake. I walk every day to keep myself from deconditioning. I’m on medication for my POTS and it has been a big help!!

Yup! That sounds like POTS! I had a lot of nausea too. Salt is your friend, so eat saltine crackers, Top Ramen, or anything else super salty to help! That helped my nausea and POTS a lot. I always kept a bag of salty chips with me in my purse. Also, try to eat small amounts throughout the day. Eating large meals is hard on your blood pressure when you have POTS. Luckily my POTS is in remission now, but I saw a study that women that have POTS are way more likely to have endometriosis, so there might be a correlation or causation.
