Comprehensive POTS Treatment

Patients with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) face extraordinary challenges. Not only is this condition often misdiagnosed, but follow-up care and treatment can also be hard to find. The POTS program at Johns Hopkins — which has one of the few POTS centers in the U.S. — is dedicated to treating adults and children with POTS.

POTS is real

POTS symptoms are not “all in your head.” It is a real condition that affects teens and adults and can be diagnosed via specific tests.

POTS is treatable

POTS symptoms respond to certain treatments, and many patients are able to reduce the frequency of flare-ups and live a more functional life.

POTS is a chronic illness

While some people with POTS do recover and many see some improvement over time, most need long-term follow up care.
