Safe numbers: But with this situation you may develop more symptoms and increasing dysautonomia without proper treatment. First line of treatment is to increase the salt and water in your diet. Naldolol will help as a beta blocker to prevent extreme swings between sympathetic and parasympathetic tone but do discuss increased salt and water intake with your doctor.
