There's always the chance that your getting sick or that something more specific is happening like triggering of an immune response or whatever... but I wouldn't know how to distinguish. Probably good to document these things as best you can, generally look for any patterns, keep a doc informed in the hopes of pinning things down if possible or in case it's something else besides "just POTS".

I just feel like I have the flu. Achy all over, etc. Hard to describe. Is this a normal POTS symptom? I feel like this has become more of a problem than any other symptom. Also have burning down my spine and arms... I know it probably is a POTS thing, just curious if anyone else has this problem..
Hi Kansas girl. Yes. I get this a lot and it can be for a couple of hours where I literally cannot move where my legs ache so much, as if I'm coming down with flu, then miraculously it will disappear. Other times it can be for a whole day at a time. No fever, like you have with flu, just that horrible ache. I have not been diagnosed as yet but this is one of my main symptoms. Hope you feeling better today.
