Hi! I am new, just figuring things out here. But, I noticed your question concerning low blood pressure. I have to watch my blood pressure daily, due to Adrenal Insufficiency. My Adrenals do not produce cortisol, (I think), in fact, they do not produce anything they are supposed to. I know stress, both mental & physical have everything to do with this. Mine quit working due to several things. My pituitary is non-functioning, plus I've had a-lot of surgeries, but it was the 7 in less than 14 months, plus my bi-polar daughter! Anyway, when my stress gets out of hand, my blood pressure drops & I go into a "Crisis", which means I need a shot of steroids, (I have a supply of pre-filled needles), plus must take oral steroids daily. Have you been experiencing a-lot of fatique lately?? Mood swongs?? Anyway, if any of this sounds familiar, you probably should see an Endocrologist. I have an inherited disease that involves the whole Endocrine system. Very confusing, to say the least. But, this is a small portion of one of my issues, that does include low blood pressure. I wish you luck in getting a correct diagnosis, as I know, if your pressure drops too low, you may not wake up! This, you must avoid!!! With best wishes, Periwinkle
Hello - I know someone who recently has been diagnosed with neurocardiogenic syncope. This sounds like it may be what you have, but you will need a workup by a specialist to determine whether or not that is the case. Have you been to an electrophysiologist?
Emitt, going to.electrophysilogist is what u need to do. That is who.diagnosed me. We haven't found the right treatment yet but at least know what wrong. Neurocardiogenic syncope is one of.the autonomic dysfunctions. There r many different ones.
