Has anyone experienced having POTS during withdrawal and how long for it to correct itself or go away?

I have it and from what I read on here its one of the more common symptoms. Some people have said it's gone away after awhile.

 

"POTS is specifically a neurotoxin disorder. The neurotoxins are created by the virus called Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) sitting in the liver for a long period of time. This specific variety of EBV produces neurotoxins that float around and swell up the nerves, preventing you from exercising and causing brain fog"

 

 

Prognosis

Currently, there is no cure for POTS, however researchers believe that some patients will see an improvement in symptoms over time. Detailed long term follow up studies on the course of POTS are sparse, but Dysautonomia International is working with researchers to begin to collect long term follow up data. With proper lifestyle adjustments, exercise, diet and medical treatments, many patients see an improvement in their quality of life.1 If an underlying cause can be identified, and if that cause is treatable, the POTS symptoms may subside. While the prognosis is good for most patients, researchers have noted that some patients will not improve and may actually worsen over time.1

 

The longest follow-up study done to date comes from Mayo Clinic.20 Mayo Clinic did a survey of their pediatric POTS patients seen between 2003 and 2010. Of those who responded to the survey, 18.2% reported a complete resolution of their POTS symptoms, while 52.8% reported persistent but improved symptoms. Male patients were twice as likely to report recovery. The average survey respondent had been diagnosed for about 5 years. Both patients who fully recovered and those who did not had mental health scores similar to the national norm.

Because benzo withdrawal lowers your immunity and reactivates viruses. That's why alot of people get shingles during withdrawal.
