Dysautonomia

Posted by Dana [1567.1399] on October 12, 2007 at 13:16:47:

Can anyone help me? I was just diagnosed with dysautonomia by my family Dr. and would like some advice how to deal with this? The symptoms are horrible and I have been unable to work.
Thanks! I am desperate to feel better.

Hi Dana,

What tests came to that conclusion?

Describe three symptoms please.

The Dr. did a whole blood workup and everything was normal. Also did an EKG and that was normal.He sent me for a chest xray and that was clear too. I have MVP, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, dizzy spells and panic attacks in addition to fatigue and trouble concentrating. There are some visual disturbances that come and go. Do you know anything about this condition and can you offer any help or advice? The Dr. said this will eventually go away on it's own? Is that true?

Dana, this is a fairly common condition so there are tons of posts.....here are a few from the archives using the search engine.

Hi Dana,

Did your doc check your thyroid function?
What about your vitamin B12 levels?

Do you have acid reflux or are you taking meds for that?

Hi Dana,

You've come to the right website for help with dysautonomia.

There is a whole set of archives devoted to the topic. If you read them, you will get a better understanding of what it is and how to work with it.

Several people who follow this website have had dysautonomia and have followed the healing protocol to become free of symptoms. I am one of them.

There is also more information in our book, "Recapture your Health."

This condition is definitely reversable.

Best wishes,
Jan

Hi Dana,

I have not posted here in quite some time now (I have been busy chasing around my 15 month old son!), but I just wanted to give you some advice and words of encouragement. In 2002 I was so ill I had to to take several months off of work because I could barely get off the couch. I had dysautonomia, and my cardiologist told me I would be on medication the rest of my life. I found this site, which was a blessing and followed the 3LS religiously. It took me almost a year to feel well again, but it worked. I feel great now and will never take my health for granted again. Read Dr. Stoll's books, it all makes sense! BTW- I am no longer on any meds.

Feel better soon.
Lauren

Best wishes,
Jan

Hi Jan,
The baby is great, thanks for asking. He is 15 months now and is running all over the place. He is alot of work and also lots of fun. Thank goodness I am feeling well, I need to so I can keep up with him! I am working perdiem at the hospital a few days a month when my husband is off work so that my son does not have to go to daycare, and it is working out well.
I hope you are feeling well. I still check out the board from time to time but I am pretty busy these days. Take care,
Lauren

Thanks, Lauren.

Glad to hear your life is so good now. :o)

I'm doing great. The only problem is trying to work 4 full time jobs and have a life, too. I do really well with one job, okay with the second job, can't touch the 3d and 4th job, and insist on having just a little bit of a life. I'm singing in the choir, and I got two kittens and they're fun.

Best wishes,
Jan
