MomtoGiuliana Posted February 9, 2005 Report Share Posted February 9, 2005 If anyone can give me any suggestions, I would be most grateful! To preface, I think autonomic problems do run in my family. Two of us have been diagnosed w/ POTS. Another of my sisters has been having GI issues off and on in recent years--but also as a child--with no diagnosis. She had a thorough work up 2 years ago by a specialist and they found no problem. This week the symptoms are starting up again. Her main symptoms are nausea and pain in her left side. She can barely eat without having a great deal of discomfort. She is of course discouraged with her doctors, and doesn't want to go to the trouble to go back to them with the same complaints, as they gave her a clean bill of health the last time these symptoms occured.My main question is--can anyone recommend good sources, on-line or otherwise for her to learn more about GI conditions--particularly anything that might be caused by autonomic dysfunction? Also, if you have any other thoughts on this--I would really appreciate it! I don't really know how to advise her at this point, beyond recommending that she go back to her doctor.Katherine Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
