Show Notes

Dr. Smith is a retired interventional radiologist who made a discovery in his career treating women with pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS):  His patients with comorbid POTS often said the PCS treatment helped their POTS. This led Dr. Smith and his colleagues to hypothesize and research some connections between PCS and POTS, which may lead to new treatments for this subset of POTS patients.  If you have chronic pelvic pain and POTS, then this episode is for you.
