Hello doctor,

I am having periodic feelings of pressure in my head with tinnitus for several years. I also have occasional crunching in my neck when I move, poor sleep, continual soreness and stiffness in my back and hips, constant weakness, and fatigue. I thought it was because of aging and managed to live with it. But it started getting more severe about a year ago with brain fog, memory difficulties, dizziness, stumbling, and bouts of either anxiety or depression. Then in the last few months, I became completely intolerant of heat and began profuse sweating, and started having powerful headaches with nausea and other digestive issues such as constipation. But all of my blood works were normal. While searching a lot on the internet, I came across dysautonomia. I would like to know more about this regarding the options for diagnosis and treatment.

Thank you.



Welcome to

I understand your concern, and I would explain that dysautonomia is a neurological disorder characterized by autonomous nervous system dysfunction. It usually leads to orthostatic hypotension, postural tachycardia syndrome, low blood pressure after eating, abnormal sweating, constipation, etc. But, based on your description, I would exclude this possible medical disorder. You should know that a chiropractor cannot diagnose or treat this disorder. Anyway, a head-up tilt test can help exclude this probable diagnosis.

I hope you will find this information helpful.

Kind regards.
