My name is Julia. I was diagnosed with POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) back in 2009. Back then, I was fainting multiple times a day and struggling with many other symptoms such as dizziness, fatigue, palpitations and exercise intolerance.
I began medications, regular exercise physiologist appointments with Panacea Movement Medicine and go course keeping up with a home exercise program.
I went from struggling to complete basic exercises lying down to now being in gaining for a 5km run!!
On July 27 this year I will be running in my second 5km Run Melbourne(though this time I hope to run the whole way!). I have chosen to raise money for POTS and Orthostatic Intolerance Research at Baker IDI so that those suffering from these or similar conditions will be able to improve like I have.
So please join the team or donate here.
