Helping Australians with POTS

Tax deductible
POTS is a condition of the autonomic nervous system which largely affects women of child-bearing age but can be experienced by both men and women of any age.

The autonomic nervous system controls many of the ‘unconscious’ functions of the body including:

Heart rate and blood pressure regulation
Bladder regulation
Gut movement and digestion
Sweating
Temperature control
Stress responses (fight or flight)
This explains why those with POTS often present with a vast array of seemingly unrelated symptoms such as fatigue, headache, gut disturbance, dizziness, pain, poor concentration and light-headedness.

POTS is associated with high levels of social, economic and health burden.

Many who experience the condition, find it difficult to work, engage in social activities or attend school.

25% of POTS patients report having to stop work or education due to the impact of the condition on their health.

Despite this, many still report a significant delay in diagnosis.

Please helps raise the much needed funds to support people effected by this debilitating condition.
