  1. This Dr. gets results that I'm using. He showed me before and after ANSAR tests on many patients he has treated. It shows graphs similar to mine and then after 6 mos. or longer of treatment, the ANS returns to normal. In simple terms, Autonomic Nervous System restored to baseline prior to onset of illness. These patients all had infections, but regardless, it was the result of toxins that the body couldn't eliminate causing the ANS disorders. By building back up the immune system, the body is able to rid these toxins on it's own, and in many cases, medications are used as adjunctive therapy w
  2. Hello everyone, Sorry so long to respond. I have been feeling terrible since I posted the Ansar testing. I had to start out very low on the B12 and Folate as it was making my anxiety go nuts. I am happy to say that I am now up to 28,00mg or 28000mcg of B12 daily and I guess I'm making my way to Methylation. I also was put on Methionine recently to help the process. This Dr. did alot of testing of my blood and it turns out, I'm testing positive for Lyme disease. Specifically Babesia Duncani and Bartonella. The Lyme itself doesn't test positive, but my Dr. is sure I have it given my all of m
  3. Just had this done a little over a week or so ago. The Orange shows my Sympathetic Activity and the Blue shows my Parasympathetic activity. I'm referring to the graph on the bottom right. As you can see, I'm in Sympathetic Overdrive. This is what I've been trying to tell so many Dr.'s for so long. Well now that this is established, the Dr. that did this test on me is trying to get my situated with Vitamins, Amino Acids, etc. He says I am undermethylated with high levels of Histamine which is why Benadryl helps me. It will take time, but this Dr. specializes in restoring Autonomic Balanc
  4. I was reading that Lecithin or Innositol both help for anxiety, but specifically, Acetylcholine is what counteracts Adrenaline. Since Lecithin is a supplement that turns into Acetylcholine, I was thinking this might help with my constant state of Anxiety. This Adrenaline stuff would probably account for the fact that Benzos such as Xanax and Klonopin don't help much to reduce my anxiety. Thanks for all your help so far, Dustin
  5. Interesting Replies and I thank each and everyone of you. Just a few more notes or should I say symptoms. I have noticed that also when I eat, sometimes, symptoms seem to exacerbate. I have been battling terrible headaches since all of this started. I wouldn't call them migraines, but then again, I'm not sure what they feel like. These headaches usually start over the notches in the back of the skull. I get pressure sensations all over the head too. My balance is also off. Not like I'm going to fall, but it feels like I'm on a boat in rocky waters where I'm bouncing around. This symptoms
  6. I have been hospitalized 4 times in the last two months. 2 times to Medicine and 2 times now to a Psych Ward. The medical admissions were for further workup as I was having low grade fevers and small white counts, like 15K, but I just complained of feeling ill. I was tested for everything and everything comes back negative. Still being told it's POTS and Dysautonomia. My Anxiety is now off the charts and when I stand up or walk, it goes away for the most part, but when I sit down, it hits me so strong. The shortness of breath is acting similar. When I sit down, I start gasping for air, bu
  7. I'm so sorry to ask these questions as I could just google them, but I can't find the answers that way. I didn't put this in my last post as I thought maybe I was coming down with something, but apparently I am not. I have had a low grade fever starting at around 3pm or so now for almost 2 weeks. My temp goes to about 99.5 or so and I feel a scratchy throat, but then in a few hours, it just goes away. I have not been myself as of lately. Many of the POTS symptoms are now occurring while I'm seated and just worsen when I stand up. For example, out of nowhere, I am having anxiety all day long
  8. Thank you for the quick replies everyone. I am reading more and more on this stuff now everyday. I really think there is more going on with me than the diagnosis I have been given. I have a sense of being sick now, like general malaise. I've been running low grade fevers in the late afternoon now, like 99.5 or so. Then I get a tickle in my throat. I will start a new topic with these symptoms. Dustin
  9. Thank you to all of you that welcomed me here. I had a death in the family and have been away from the computer for a while. I tell you, it never ends as I get older. Ok, so please tell me what you make of this. I am finding all sorts of stuff happening to me now, but the latest is that I when I stand up, I can instantly start to feel depressed. I'm not ecstatic to start with, but I can be sitting just fine, usually with my legs elevated and then I go to get up and my HR goes up, but I get this overwhelming feeling of sadness. I don't cry, but I get pretty close. I sit back down and then
  10. Hey everyone, My name is Dustin. I am 45 years old and the father of two kids 9 and 10 years old. I first developed POTS about 6 months ago and it has been so severe that I had to leave my job of 23 years and go on disability. As time has passed, I have developed some really strange symptoms that my Neuro doc. is calling Dysautonomia, however when I google them I can't find them as symptoms of Dysautonomia. First let me tell you that I have been put on Klonopin and Xanax as my anxiety flares out of nowhere. Even with these meds on board, my anxiety doesn't always settle down and I will be
