Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, or "POTS," is a disorder of the autonomic nervous system. Heart rate, breathing, temperature regulation, blood flow, digestion, and everything else that your body is supposed to do automatically gets all messed up. Symptoms can rage from being moderately annoying to completely debilitating. There are people with this illness who are unable to work, go to school, or even sit up for more than a few minutes at a time. An organization called Dysautonomia International is working with Mayo Clinic on researching the cause(s) of POTS. This testing is looking at how antibodies discovered in the blood stream may be associated with different forms of dysautonomia.
