Abstract

Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) is a chronic, debilitating condition characterized by heterogeneous symptoms, such as lightheadedness, palpitations, pre-syncope, syncope, and weakness or heaviness, especially of the legs. It is frequently associated with hypermobile joints or conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic abdominal pain, migraine headache, and diabetes mellitus. Described is a case of POTS, which though it is not rare, is rarely diagnosed. It can be diagnosed quickly with simple methods.
