Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (or “Joint Hypermobility Syndrome”) is a common presentation in many cases of POTS. Previously, doctors assumed that a gradual laxity of vessels was the cause of orthostatic intolerance in these patients. Instead, the team at POTS Care has found that triggers such as infection or trauma are the more likely culprits for illness presentation. At POTS Care, the doctors never assume that the cause of your illness is genetic and therefore nothing can be done except for symptom reduction. Instead, the entire team will focus on locating and treating the medical cause for your illness. It is not necessary for you to have a diagnosis of a connective tissue disorder to be seen at POTS Care.
