The autonomic nervous system is supposed to keep things running on an even keel in your body. It controls your breathing, heart rate, temperature, balance etc...things that just happen in your body without you having to think about it. When you have dysautonomia you body is not working how it should be and problems occur. Here are some of the symptoms they listed:
- Aches and pains
- Anxiety attacks
- Blurred vision
- Digestive problems
- Dizziness, sometimes with fainting
- Low blood pressure (especially upon standing)
- Numbness and tingling
- Poor exercise tolerance
- Rapid heart rate
- temperature control
- trouble sleeping
With my FM and CFS I have had all the symptoms at one time or another and it was only in the past 2-3 years that I have had them for long periods of time with worsening problems with the aches and pains, blurred vision, depression, dizziness, fatigue, trouble sleeping, numbness and tingling, rapid heart rate, bruising, and temperature regulation. Some days I do great and have very few problems but on the other days...well it is just better I go to bed and stay there cause I don't do well with anything including interpersonal relationships with family and friends.
