  • I have that problem, my consultant said it was something to do with not being able to control our body temperature very well xx

  • I have pots so it could be to do with that aswell xx

  • Its not so much of an issue at 6 yr old but im worried how it will affect her as she grows up, think a trip to the gp is in order, shes not under anyone at all, we got a letter from the pead at the hospital that said shea got HMS and discharged her

  • I have EDS type 3 and POTS and the sweat pours out of me but I have Raynauds as well so I freeze in the cold weather. Basically, our thermostats are broken. There are special deodorants that act by blocking the sweat ducts but they can only be used on the hands, feet and armpits

  • How would my gp diagnose this? I don't know what POTS is sorry x

  • Yes it does and can often be caused by POTS.

  • POTS is postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. Have a read up on it on the Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome website

  • Yes or on the Stars website www.stars.org.uk
