A 31-year-old male asked:

I have dysautonomia and when i get really lightheaded(i don't faint) i get junctional ectopic beats and runs, then when i lay down they go away. could it be hypoxia from the dysautonomia since it happens when i'm lightheaded?

The dysautonomia is the cause of the symptoms not hypoxia. The light headedness is a symptom of dysautonomia.
