  1. Thank you so much for this article! 🙏 It's good to hear other people's experience of finding out they have dysautonomia and what it's like to start living now that you know you have dysautonomia.
  2. Hi everyone. I've just being diagnosed with POTS after a NASA Lean Test. From the little I've learned about POTS so far it seem like that I am having trouble getting blood to the top half of me when I'm upright. I have read raising the bed head a bit may be helpful. Could someone please explain how this works, as I would have thought you'd want to raise your feet in bed to get blood flow to the brain. Thanks!
  3. Thanks for the suggestion @endless_august I haven't had any testicular pain since Dec, but I'll keep your idea in mind!
  4. Hi. I am wondering if anyone knows if dysautonomia can cause testicular pain? My Dr arranged for me to get some ultrasounds done which showed Nutcracker Syndrome, which he said would be causing my reoccurring testicle pain. However, afterwards I was referred to see a Vascular Surgeon who also did some ultrasounds and it showed no Nutcracker Syndrome/compression of the renal vein. I seem to get testicular pain after sitting for a couple of hours or more, like after travelling in the car for 3 hours to visit my Mum. I've had 2 courses of antibiotics to treat some testicular infection
  5. Thank you for making this video, as it's helped me feel I am normal for someone with Dysautonomia. It's interesting that even though I've being diagnosed with Dysautonomia but not POTS I still have most of the symptoms of POTS.
  6. Well done on putting this together as it was a lot of work for someone with Dysautonomia! Silent night is such a classic. Even though I sing hymns and modern Christian songs at church regularly, there is something about Christmas carols like Silent Night that deeply move me, often to tears of gratitude. It's very special doing an item with your family too - a memory you can all cherish.
  7. @PistolThank you @pistol for reassuring those of us with Dysautonomia that we don't have a greater risk from COVID-19 👍 Since being sick in 2015 it seems like my immune system is fairly normal in terms of I haven't caught the flu or a cold any more than average. I did catch a virus recently that left my wife (who got it 1st) and I with vertigo, but I recovered quicker than her!
  8. Thanks so much for this article! I've only been recently diagnosed with Dysautonomia and I'm working with my GP to try some treatments to see if they can help me. I'm hoping others with Dysautonomia might be able to help me with the below questions: I seem to have developed food intolerance over the last 5 years. I've eliminated lots of foods thinking they have caused stomach pain, bloating or diarrhoea. Is this normal? However I'm beginning to wonder if my dysautonomia will cause me to have stomach pain and bloating anyway (even if I eat foods that are OK for me), particularly if I've ov
  9. Thanks so much for this article. I've recently been diagnosed with Dysautonomia but had to stop work in Nov 2019. Some of us from church got together for Christmas Eve and a lady (Bronwyn) that doesn't know me very well asked me how my work was going. I explained how I had to stop work because I wasn't able to do the job any more due to cognative impairment, chronic fatigue etc. Bronwyn responded well and showed empathy and concern, which was nice. Giving a vague answer and changing the discussion to my interests and hobbies etc as discussed in this article may be a good tactic in different ci
