E31: How POTS Affects Men: Mental Health Findings with Dr. Brooke Wagner and Dr. Cathy Pederson
00:39:12

POTS is often thought of as a "female" disorder, which has negative implications for men who are diagnosed with POTS and other chronic invisible illnesses.

Trigger warning: We do discuss suicidal behavior in this episode.
