Roughly 1 in 4 people worldwide has anemia. The number is even higher among women. Symptoms of anemia mimic symptoms of POTS, so it’s not surprising that a potsie with anemia would have even worse symptoms than usual.
Taking iron supplements helps to increase your red blood count, thus delivering more oxygen to your body.
I’ve found that taking iron regularly helped with POTS symptoms such as tingling and numbness in my arms and legs. It’s also helped with morning fatigue.
It’s smart to have your blood-work done on a regular basis – that way if you are anemic, your doctor can monitor your recovery.
