Suggest treatment for postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome

My daughter has been sick for two years. After numerous testing and trips to Cleveland Clinic and a clinic in St Louis she has been diagnosed with pots plus. I see my child suffer daily with this syndrome. I feel like her symptoms are signs that there is an issue that someone is missing. Sever fatigue, nausea always, red ears, vomiting, some dizziness, some headaches, swelling of the hands and feet. I pray everyday that someone somewhere will have an answer or even some guidance that may help her. Can anyone help me?

Hi i did review your concern sir,
Pots syndrome can be quite distressful for the kids.
the best approach should be to use compression stockings take heavy salt and water and do regular aerobic exercise with leg raisings to increase venous return.
Mild doses of fludrocortisone and SSRI group of drugs also helps sometimes.

I hope this helps.
wish you all the best.
thank you for choosing healthcaremagic.
