Might add usage of metanx twice daily as this does increase fibre density in diabetes, but not studied in other conditions. ...Read more
Dysautonomia. Normal BP/HR. Light headed sat down,standing and less laid. If I push stomach in with my hands, I quickly feel more normal? Why is this?

The trunk of the vagus is by the end of the trachea where the cardiac nerve arises. So I'm glad you found a way to help you feel more normal. Good job! Everything in our body is related to other nearby structures. ...Read more

But the treatment for this disorder of the autonomic nervous system of either type depends on the expertise of the doctor and the patience of the patient. ...Read more
Multifaceted: Treatment should involve input from electrophysiology, neurology, exercise physiology and even pyschology. Education is often the most effective. A rigorous exercise program in 1 study was effective. B-blockers, blood volume expanders (florinef), vasoconstrictors (midodrine), anti-depressants, Mestinon are some of the medications that are used with degrees of success. ...Read more
