  1. Derek, I have the same issue and know exactly what you're talking about. I've been able to notice I'm mostly triggered by certain foods so I'm able to avoid it or prepare. Bacon is the worst as I frequently get pre-syncope, and have to cook with a chair and fans. I'm assuming it has to do with the grease or fat, but unsure of why it happens? If you or anyone learns the science behind this let me know lol

I make it a point to get out of bed by a certain time, make the bed, and get dressed, even if I just move to the couch. Luckily I have 6 rescue animal (3dogs, 3 cats) that keep me moving lol. Unfortunately some days just consist of sleep but it's something I continue to work on. @StayAtHomeMom I was late teens/early adulthood at my worst, and
  7. Hello everyone Ive been searching for a active forum and happy I found this community! I’ve had Dysautonomia symptoms like heat intolerance, Tachycardia, dizziness, and fatigue since puberty. I wasn’t diagnosed however until I fainted when I was 16 because my symptoms were always attributed to my Social Anxiety Disorder. I was professionally diagnosed with NeuroCardiogenic Syncope (NcS) Abdul Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) via a Tilt Table Test. My symptoms are pretty average to most experience with thess illnesses, but oddity is in my TTT results. When I fain
