End Time: 1:00 pm (Eastern Standard Time)

Description: The Autonomic Nervous system automatically controls many functions of the body such as breathing, blood pressure, heart rate and body temperature. When it dysfunctions, you can have symptoms such as syncope (a brief loss of consciousness or fainting), weakness, light headedness, fatigue, nausea, and palpitations. Autonomic disorders, such as Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) and syncope are common condition. They are often the result of an underlying medical condition that could be related to your heart, nervous system or blood flow to the brain. Join us as we chat with Dr. Fredrick Jaeger, cardiologist at Cleveland Clinic as he answers your questions about syncope, POTS and other autonomic disorders that can affect your heart.
