Can hyperparathyroidism cause dysautonomia?
So far my lab work is consistent with hyperparathyroidism. Nevertheless I have had many symptoms of dysautonomia, such as lightheadedness, weakness, muscle aches, palpitations, shortness of breath, disregulation of temperature, nausea and other gastrointestinal symptoms, loss of appetite, dilated pupils at inappropriate times, fatigue, headaches, tachycardia, postural orthostatic tachycardia, sleep disorders, numbness, parasthesia, light sensitivity, noise sensitivity, and "reactive hypoglycemia" with normal glucose levels. There are few references online that link these two conditions. There is not much, however. Does anyone know about overlap between these conditions? Can one cause the other? Does anyone else have experience having both of these conditions?

Yes,  I have Hyper POTS. After multiple tests to find out what caused it I found out I had hyperparathyroidism and they believe I had had it for over 20 years. I went to Norman Parathyroid Clinic in Tampa and had it removed.  I improved considerably.  No more lightheadedness, dizziness, fainting, temperature intolerance and I even started sweating again. I can eat normal meals and no longer have periods of dementia like episodes.  I no longer have to use a wheelchair and can now even clean my own house.  Some things have not gone away.  I still have constant ringing in my ears, sometimes my heart rate and blood pressure start acting up, my eyesight is still blurry but no more double vision or bouts of blindness.  My Endo doctor where I live would not remove the tumor because he didn't feel it was bad enough.  He wanted to just watch it.  I contacted Norman Parathyroid Clinic and went there.  I am glad I did.  My doctor says my body  will always have POTS tendencies but I am doing remarkably well.  I had my surgery June 30th 2016.
