POTS

Dysautonomia/POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome): a condition in which the autonomic nervous system is functioning poorly; this can result in problems throughout the body, but most prominently affects the cardiovascular system (poor blood circulation, especially to the brain) with associated rapid heart rate and occasional fainting. The gastrointestinal system can also be severely affected which causes poor digestive processes and often abdominal pain. Since the autonomic nervous system controls all involuntary bodily functions, potentially any system of the body can be affected.

Dr. Fox is uniquely inspired to treat patients with this syndrome because she also has this condition herself.
