Customer Question
What can be done...

What can be done about dysautonomis?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes I've seen a cardiologist. All I'm taking is high blood pressure medicine.

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?

Yes both my parents had high blood pressure.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Well yes and I forgot to tell him. I have MVP and it used to cause me a great deal of trouble. My heart would take off racing. So they did a surgery on me where they went through my groin and up to my heart and cauterized something. That problem went away.

Dysautonomia is an umbrella term used to describe several different medical conditions that cause a malfunction of the Autonomic Nervous System

why do you think you have dysautonomia?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Because I have high blood pressure but once in a while (maybe 3 times per week) my blood pressure plummets. Down to like 90/64, although it has gone even much lower than that. And my cardiologist told me I have dysautonomia.

standing up from a seated position can cause your blood pressure to drop

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
