It could be two different things
Thanks for the clarification.
POTS is certainly very disabling and I understand what you are going through. The cause for the POTS is not still clear and it can also be initiated with the trauma that you had.
Further to this your complains of ringing in ears and imbalance further suggest that the cause is in the inner ear
. Your heart rate
of 150 can never be explained by ear pathology and hence I feel that they both are from a different etiology.
For POTS may different therapies are suggested but of them the most effective for my patients has been taking excess of drinking water and therapy with propranolol
For ear causes it would be wise to get your ear examined and also to get an hearing test to look for any ear pathology.
For the thoracic spine problem you will have to maintain a proper posture and will have to have a regular physiotherapy
sessions for backache
. The shakes and weakness of your left side of the body is difficult to explain but it could be due to some compressikn of intervertebral nerve
and this can be confirmed by doing a whole spine MRI
. This can be useful for evaluating the thoracic spine problems as well.
Basically all these symptoms are probably not related to each other.
Hope that was helpful,
Thanks and regards
