I have a unpinpointed type of autonomic dysfunction that is genetic to be thought since my father has it too, just less severe. I started getting signs at a young age and they have gradually gotten worse and more appear the older I get. Once I reached age 19 no more symptoms have came about, so I'm hoping it's reached its point. Back in March I was hospitalized for vaginal bleeding that was unstoppable, I ended up needing iv hormones, blood transfusion, and a d&c and was still told by my doctor it would be a surprise if I made it and if I ever had the same situation I had a slim chance of survival. The doctor never found a reason for the bleeding, so it kind of was just left in the air. Last week I tested reactive for hep c (my husband did first and that's why I got tested). Now I'm left trying to figure out if me getting hep c will have a big effect on my prior condition, if my condition will cause the hep c to harm me faster, and if the hep c was somehow linked to my bleeding that was never diagnosed. I should be asking a doctor all this but my doctor knows nothing about autonomic dysfunction except a small few things. I myself know more then my doctor and actually was the one who figured out all the tests I needed him to order. So, anyone if you actually got this far, can someone give me any advice, input, similar situations?
