Timbo Posted December 7, 2004 Report Share Posted December 7, 2004 First of all I got a clean bill of health and my holter monitor test was normal.I had an interesting discussion with my cardiologist this morning. I have Addison's Disease and POTS. He said that many Addison's patients develop autonomic problems. I had suspicions that Addison's and Dysautonomia were linked, but this is the first time a doctor has told me that they definitely are. I can't recall all of the technical information he gave me but he says that the dysfunctional adrenal glands can interfere with the autonomic nervous system.The reason I initially suspected this was because I belong to an online Addison's support group and many of them have low blood pressure problems and orthostatic hypotension. My endocrinologist diagnosed me with mild orthostatic hypotension before I developed POTS.Does anyone on this board, other than I have Addison?s Disease?
