It's good to know sometimes I feel like I'm going crazy

You're not crazy. The doctor told my daughter that she should wait 30 minutes before walking. She would have pain in her chest, shotness of breath and passing out.

Small meals is key for me. Larger (regular size) meals increase my symptoms significantly and I feel really heavy. At restaurants I often only eat an appetizer or only eat half even if I have to eat again in a few hours.

This has been happening to me for years. It was honestly my first POTS symptom I think. Still happens though. As everyone has said, small meals help a lot. Alcohol always makes it worse for me.

This happens to me! I didn't realize it was from pot though. I get so bloated I feel like I can't move/breathe. When you say small frequent meals how small and how frequent?
