  1. Hi, DYSarray I looked up this QSART test and do not understand how this sweat gland test can diagnose Dysautonomia, I know I do not hardly sweat at all. (lol) Maybe you can explain this somehow.

  5. Hi, All I am a Newby I have not been medical diagnosed with Dysautonomia, actually I never heard of POTS until someone posted this site in another group. I was not looking for this at all. I need answers for some of my medical problems. I know some of them like heart disease, Fatigue, interstitial lung disease (with no known cause yet besides that I have alveolitis and need to use oxygen)and Peripheral neuropathy and they found my that diaphragm during a sniff test is functioning appropriately on inspiration, expiration.
