Dysautonomia is a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system which causes many symptoms, and which causes difficulties with controlling your heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, and more. This is usually life changing for many people, like me for an example.
Over several months I had an MRI, CT, two occiptal nerve blocks, and physical therapy on my neck. It was discovered that I had a buldging disc and arthritis in my neck. One is fixable and one is not. After going over all my symptoms they diagnosed me also with occipital and trigeminal neuralgia.
