    Yep, that's me. According to my cardiologist, I have both POTS and NCS.

    I mention this only because I have seen some folks say that you can only have one or the other.

    NCS is sometimes called, NMH, Neurally Mediated Hypotension, to emphasize the drop in blood pressure more than the faint (syncope).

    From what I have read, many patients (at least patients who have both ME/CFS and POTS/NCS) don't actually faint very often in real life settings. But they may faint during a tilt table test.
