Sophia3 Posted July 16, 2008 Report Share Posted July 16, 2008 (edited) Question, I thought POTS was an exagerrated response of ANS. Autonomic FAILURE or Shy Drager syndrome was a lessoned response.I know somebody that was told by some ANS expert they would improve as they only had "exaggerated response" not a lessened response. Could somebody here clear this up for me. Granted this person was very ill with a horrible documented sudden illness a few years ago AND IS GETTING BETTER.I have had POTS (my whole life as I examined things after my 1998 ttt) This person was active and for instance, could blow up balloons.I could NEVER BLOW UP BALLOONS even as a kid without getting sick headaches or nauseated. Also tried playing harmonica and would get ill. so, anyway, I would like some feedback on this subject and if you have links to articles on this please list or pm me.I thought all POTS was an exaggerated response. i know when we ruled out Meniere's Disease (after some motion sickness inducing ear tests, I was told my brainstem over reacted to visual stimuli)Thanks for any feedback.Soph Edited July 16, 2008 by MightyMouse fixed title Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
