Patients with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) face extraordinary challenges. Not only is this condition often misdiagnosed, but follow-up care and treatment can also be hard to find. The POTS program at Johns Hopkins — which has one of the few POTS centers in the U.S. — is dedicated to treating adults and children with POTS.
POTS is real
POTS is treatable
POTS symptoms respond to certain treatments, and many patients are able to reduce the frequency of flare-ups and live a more functional life.
POTS is a chronic illness
While some people with POTS do recover and many see some improvement over time, most need long-term follow up care.

COVID-19 and POTS: Is There a Link?
Although many people recover quickly from COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, others who recover may continue to experience symptoms for months. Researchers are still determining the cause of these extended symptoms, but some COVID-19 "long-haulers" may actually be dealing with POTS.
POTS: A Little-Known Cause of Extreme Fatigue
While there are many causes of fatigue, one of them is frequently missed and misdiagnosed: postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS). Physical medicine and neuromuscular specialist Tae Chung, M.D., answers questions about POTS and extreme fatigue as one of its symptoms.
