Welcome to the fold. I can relate to your bra issues, in fact any tight or textured clothing causes problems. Although this seems a lesser issue when you consider the debilation POTS causes, it can be highly irritating for the sufferer, who’s unable to find comfort.
Regarding your skin issues, I wonder if some of it could be Vit C deficiency related. This can manifest as pink, red or purplish dots on the skin. I know a lot of people say “well I drink lots of juice” but, if it has sugar in, this can restrict the absorption, so you need to make sure you get lots of vegetable based vit C – cabbage, broccoli, kale, spinach, lettuce, celery, cauliflower, peppers, brussel sprouts, peas, peppers, fennel, sunflower seeds, lentils. Several times a day is better than lots all at once and, even a little is better than none.
Skin problems can also be a shortage of zinc, so as long as you are not allergic or nut intolerant, try upping your zinc foods – almonds, walnuts, cashew nuts, peanuts, pecan nuts, beans, mushrooms.
What’s your salt intake like, would you say you ate 2-3 grams a day ?
