Kathy MacDonald Posted December 16, 2004 Report Share Posted December 16, 2004 I joined this forum because my 13 yr. old daughter has just been diagnosed with Dysautonomia. For the past 4 years we have aasked how one child can have so many medical problems and have them not all be related. We just took her to see a new neurologist and now we know, in fact, most of her medical issues are related. She has these and more...MigrainesGERDConstipationIBSDizziness and faintingGeneralized anxiety disorderOCDHypersensitivity to painLack of sensitivity to coldIcy cold but sweaty hands and feet"Loose joints"Currently her migraines and anxiety are the biggest problems. I didn't realize until after the neuro appt. that there is more than one type of Dysautonomia so I didn't ask which type she has. Can anyone here make a guess? We live in Boston and Billie is followed by multiple docs at Children's Hospital. We want to learn as much as we can so that we can help Billie. I look forward to learning from all of you.Kathy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
