Abstract

Quantitative and qualitative abnormalities in visceral function have been demonstrated in postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. Joint hypermobility is frequently associated with both postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and gastrointestinal symptoms. Future studies in this area should appropriately and systematically control for the presence of joint hypermobility syndrome.
