I’ve had a few test ana negative. All heart test good. Mri spine good mri brain there was 7 lesions three neurosurgeon said not in MS region I’ve had those for years being watched. Question is 2 months prior my 13 year old started having seizures at least weekly. Could this have caused pots seeing it panicked me so bad. Or when I went to er for chest pains and they gave me aspirin not few minutes later my hr was 180. Which would happen few times a day while at hospital. Could aspirin have done it. I didn’t notice till I got home that my hr was hitting 140 + when everytime i stood.

Hi Nikki, High levels of stress and medications can trigger POTS certainly. Although it is possible that your aspirin was an unrelated coincidence. I’m so sorry to hear that you are dealing with this! :(

So would there still be an underlying cause . I just feel like if I could find the cause that maybe it’s treatable? Maybe help calm my pots down.
