    Abstract

    Fatigue is a significant symptom that is frequently reported by those with postural tachycardia syndrome (PoTS). There are a variety of reasons why those with PoTS might experience fatigue and as a consequence an individualised approach to management is most appropriate.

    In this chapter we will examine the prevalence of fatigue in those with PoTS, its overlap with conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome and describe a clinical approach to the management of fatigue in those with PoTS.

    Trish,

    did you go to the sci-hub site and then enter the doi # into their search bar? That works for me...

    I am browsing the artcile and this paragraph jumps out.

    To me, this is a pretty confusing and muddled statement.
