This is a very helpful letter from Professor Manoj Sivan and colleagues to the JMV which is aimed at increasing awareness about the importance of recognising and managing PoTS, and other aspects of autonomic nervous system dysfunction (dysautonomia),  in Long Covid, ME/CFS and other post viral diseases

I am in contact with Professor Sivan regarding the role of dysautonomia – PoTS, orthostatic intolerance etc – in ME/CFS

The MEA has information leaflets covering PoTS and orthostatic intolerance
