Rosie Posted July 3, 2007 Report Share Posted July 3, 2007 Hi All-I'm new here. I must say I am glad to find others with Dysautonomia but sorry that we all feel a need to be here.I was diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse with Dysautonomia about 30 years ago. Just recently, about 21 months ago, I was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea. What has been surprising and pleasing is that treatment with a CPAP has helped tremendously with the Dysautonomia symptoms. There is a bit of research which indicates that the ANS is really stressed during Apnea events, that the effects of the stress tends to carry over during the day, and that treament with CPAP can mitigate the effects. I would love to talk with others who have both disorders, and find out about your treatment and results. If you don't mind sharing, please do. I hope there will be more research in this area before long. Looking forward to hearing from you.....even if you don't have both disorders.
