maryfw Posted October 2, 2007 Report Share Posted October 2, 2007 I have posted about this before and I seem to be unique in this but I think I am starting to understand more about what my autonomic disorder means to me. When I fly.....on the take offs, the rapid acceleration and change in pressure and altitude makes me shake violently and almost pass out. Even in a car on a really quick take off I do this (when someone is driving because I never take off quickly after having 2 bad experiences). I have never been able to hang unside down as a kid from the monkey bars because of this. So this is what I think is happening. When people like us stand up our blood vessels dont constrict like they should and the blood pools in our legs and we lose bp and blood flow to the brain, right. So what I think is happening to me isa rapid and extreme loss of pressure and I am shaking so violently in the upper parts of my body because of that. Does that seem right? Should I be concerned enough to not fly again. When I tell my doctor about his they never seem to get it.thanks for listening to my unique situation.mary Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
