Johnson, a former U.S. Navy Aviation Diesel Mechanic, claims his symptoms have worsened so much that he can even sit cross-legged and feel sick.
“I’m allergic to gravity. It may sound crazy, but it’s true. I pass out, feel sick, pass out even if I’m standing for more than three minutes. Lying down , I feel a lot better,” she told The Independent.
“I’m in bed all day – up to 23 hours a day. Never thought I’d have to use a shower chair at 28. I can’t leave the house anymore. There’s no cure, but I’m very I am grateful for what I have,” she added.
In 2018, he became ill while serving overseas in the Navy. She suffered from chronic pain and her doctors were unable to pinpoint the cause of her condition.Six months later she was discharged from the army. She was hospitalized several times, and her doctors often blamed anxiety on her pain.
When a cardiologist theorized it could be PoTS, she had slope tests (blood pressure, blood oxygen, heart rate) up to final diagnosis. Now Johnson says she has reduced her fainting to three times a day and is on a beta-blocker that also helps with nausea. I am working hard to fight my condition better.
