Understanding Dysautonomia

Dysautonomia is a group of disorders that impact the autonomic nervous system, which regulates automatic bodily functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, and temperature control. Dysautonomia can manifest in various ways and may result in a range of symptoms, including:

Fluctuations in Blood Pressure:

Dysautonomia can lead to episodes of low blood pressure (orthostatic hypotension) or high blood pressure (hypertension). This can lead to headaches, brain fog, lightheadedness, fainting, dizziness, and anxiety.

Heart Rate Irregularities:

Some individuals with dysautonomia may experience rapid heartbeats (tachycardia) or slow heartbeats (bradycardia). They can also feel heart palpitations and chest pains as well.

Digestive Issues:

Dysautonomia can affect digestion, leading to symptoms such as nausea, bloating, constipation, or diarrhea.

Temperature Regulation Problems:

Individuals with dysautonomia may have difficulty regulating their body temperature, leading to excessive sweating or difficulty staying warm.
