October is Dysautonomia Awareness month! I myself suffer from a form of Dysautonomia called Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). Dysautonomia is an umbrella term used to describe neurological disorders that cause malfunction of the Autonomic Nervous System which regulates heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, temperature control and more. Dysautonomia is more common than you would think, affecting an estimated 1 in every 100 teenagers and including adult patients, a total of 1 million to 3 million Americans. I look forward to shining light on Dysautonomia this month and helping to educate more people on it!
