- •Patients with POTS exhibit significant challenges pertaining to psychological symptoms and quality of life.
- •Anxiety sensitivity may be the more prominent manifestation of anxiety in patients with POTS.
- •Autonomic symptoms are correlated with increased impairment in depression, pain catastrophizing and quality of life.
- •Findings support existing theories that psychological symptoms may be a response to physical symptoms.
