    A Nurse with POTS Disability: A Great Success Story!

    I know this thread is old but I am feeling kinda lost and helpless. I was just diagnosed with POTS after months of feeling my worst. At first I felt crazy because no doctor could explain my tachycardia, fainting spells, BP changes and the pain I was feeling. Unfortunately for me my job hasn't been so kind. I currently work in labor&delivery but have used up my sick time dealing with this condition. I mean I was written up after a fainting spell while driving into work because I needed to go to the ER. short of the long my manager now threatens me with suspension from work even though I now finally have answers and have had doctors notes to support me. With extra shifts being forced on us my symptoms are only getting worse and I'm trying to look at this a time to make a career change. Any other nurses living with POTS that just can't manage providing bedside care?? I'm so lost as to what to do or where to take my nursing career.
