futurehope Posted January 22, 2010 Report Share Posted January 22, 2010 Just yesterday, my dermatologist was suspecting I have Roseacea, which basically is the skin's reaction to whatever it wants to react to. It shows reddening on the cheeks, and stuff that looks like acne pimples. Normally, people do not react to these things.I'm noticing that since POTS, my nervous system overreacts to anything, be it sight, sound, changes. My tolerance to change has decreased. My bladder lining overreacts to different foods, making it susceptible to feeling inflammed. This is called interstitial cystitis. My esophagus and stomach lining overreact to different foods, making them susceptible to feeling inflammed. It's called GERD.My intestines, overreact to every day life. I could write a book about my escapades with my stomach and intestines.In short, I display a marked inability to tolerate many "normal" everyday occurrences. There must be a connection to all this, like Lyme's Disease (which I do not think I have because I have never had pain issues), or mast cell activation disorder, or lupus, or ?????Can anyone else shed some light on this overreactivity? Thanks. Obviously, I'm missing something in understanding all this. I will bring this up with my neuro in a few weeks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
