Dysautonomia is an Amazing Challenge to Treat

Dysautonomia is not exactly a rare disease because it affects so many people.

So, it’s surprising that so little is known about this central nervous system disease, or what causes it.

This lack of knowledge makes it especially hard to treat, and patients often go years before receiving a correct dysautonomia diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

The medical community holds the view that this syndrome may be the root cause of many symptoms and conditions, such as:

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Fainting
  • Reoccurring headaches

Certain triggers seem to be associated with the onset of dysautonomia, including:

  • Environmental toxins
  • Viral diseases
  • Chest and head injuries
  • Possible genetic links

Dysautonomia symptoms vary widely from person to person, further adding to the mystery. Acid reflux, bladder dysfunction, excessive thirst, high blood pressure, low blood pressure… and the list goes on.

The treatments being used today start with regular physical exercise.

It sounds promising because the results show that these exercises seem to stabilize many symptoms.

The various drugs being used at this time show limited results in treatment.
