I got Lyme Disease for a second time this past August and I have had POTS since then.

The first time I had Lyme, I also had POTS and it eventually reduced significantly with Lyme treatment.

What do you recommend for POTS?

Yaay I found a solution!!

I saw my LLMD today and she started me on himalayan salt pills. I took my first dose right after the appointment and I feel a huge difference. She also wants me drinking a ton of water throughout the day

She said that dysautonomia is very common in Lyme patients
