Sleep

We have recently found a correlation between sleep problems and heath related quality of life in POTS.

 

Patients should practice good sleep hygiene including:

  • Having a set bedtime and time to wake up
  • Avoiding alcohol, caffeine, and exercise before bed
  • Avoid napping when possible
  • Optimizing bedroom comfort including lighting and temperature
