Based on my reading and other peoples' experience, I think my worst "attacks" (nausea, rapid heart rate, light headedness, shivering) are caused by adrenaline surges. I am a HUGE movie fan.

My buddy just can't cool down. I started having an "attack" once in a restaurant because it was a little warm. My body felt like the temperature was fine but I started to have heat stroke symptoms. I rushed outside where it was cooler and was instantly fine. I have to be very aware of temperature. My dysautonomia specialist said it was common -- especially in those with nerve damage like myself.
