“Dysautonomia and POTS: Sympathetic nerves reside in the spinal cord from T1 of the thoracic spine to L2 of the lumbar spine... Sympathetic stimulation can occur from any ligament or tendon injury or elongation. If a ligament remains in this state of injury, w/the sympathetic system firing chronically, we can see how dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system could occur.” (article, infographics, link to webinar) April 27, 2015 #NBaird #CaringMedical #Dysautonomia #POTS #EDS

“31 Days of Dysautonomia Awareness: Fact 5 POTS patients may have a kind of dehydration called isotonic hypovolemia, which means that they have a low volume of red blood cells and a low plasma volume. This low volume makes the heart work harder to ensure the brain and other vital organs get the oxygen and nutrients they require.”
