  • I& #039 ;m continuing #DysautonomiaAwareness month with my 22nd post! What are some signs of an impending #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome episode, and what happens during one? For me, one of the first physical signs is my lips. They become extremely pale in a matter of seconds, and usually begin to throb shortly after losing their color. The rest of me (somehow) then pales as well. I then lose all energy, and begin feeling tightness in my chest (as I do with #Pleurisy ), and my limbs feel extremely heavy. Don& #039 ;t even get me started on how dizzy I get! Usually about an hour or two after these issues arise, it hits. When a #POTS attack hits, it drains you completely. Emotionally, I feel helpless and alone. Mentally, I& #039 ;m worried about being too much to handle. Physically, I& #039 ;m unable to do anything - usually all I can do is a) curl up on the couch, or b) lay flat on the floor wherever I am. The only ways you can really combat it (if you& #039 ;re like me and can find no treatment for the condition) is to lie down, drink water... And wait. Sometimes it& #039 ;s just a small episode, maybe 5 minutes to a few hours... Sometimes it takes days/weeks to get over it. This means, regardless of end/recovery time, I lose my appetite, my acid reflux reacts to the sudden large intake of water, housework is put to a complete stop, work is on hold for a bit, and any plans I made to go out on the town are shut down immediately. During and after a POTS attack, I& #039 ;m at risk for a #Fibro flare, my #RaynaudsSyndrome runs amuck, my #Spondylitis attacks... Everything hits me at once and I& #039 ;m lucky if I can even stand on my own! This is where my wheelchair joins the family again, and where I& #039 ;m stuck resting whether I want to or not! So please, when I cancel plans unexpectedly or have to take extra measures to make sure I don& #039 ;t have to walk, it isn& #039 ;t because I& #039 ;m just being lazy. I can& #039 ;t function some days and I won& #039 ;t risk falling / further injurying myself to keep up with the fast pace of life. I simply have to rest. #Dysautonomia #chronicpain #HeartCondition #VasovagalSyncope #flare

  • My tummy is swollen like a beach ball, I’m lethargic and generally a bit bleurgh today, so I’m having a restful day, but trying to do the odd bits n pieces. My freezer really doesn’t hold a great deal, and is fit to burst recently, but I keep avoiding sorting through it and rearranging stuff because it generally sets my Raynauds off, but I thought I’d be good and tackle it. Oddly enough my hands were very tolerant of the cold for a change, I fact I got quite hot during the process and whilst I was giving the outside of the fridge/freezer a general wipe down I was reminded of this magnetic sign a friend gave me when I was separating 3 years ago. Because it’s here everyday I often don’t notice it, but I felt I was supposed to read it today....it helped. It always looks nice and bright surrounded by the flower magnets I used to make years ago, but today I feel the message was a loving kick up the bum that alls going to be ok ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป...what’s even weirder is the friend that gave it to me has just txt me as I write this...so im off to read that now ๐Ÿ˜Š #message #positivevibes #raiseyourvibration #flowers #raynauds #raynaudssyndrome #cold #freezer #chore #domesticated #sign #friend #friendship #myhome #goodforthesoul #bright #youreworthit #believeinyourself #followyourdreams #IBS #lowfodmap #comforteating #painful #swollen

  • Time to bring some awareness to #raynauds #raynaudsdisease #raynaudssyndrome Ray·naud& #039 ;s dis·ease Raynaud& #039 ;s syndrome a disease characterized by spasm of the arteries in the extremities, especially the fingers ( Raynaud& #039 ;s phenomenon ). It is typically brought on by constant cold or vibration, and leads to pallor, pain, numbness, and in severe cases, gangrene. this is probably about a 4 our of 10 on how bad my fingers get when they get cold. My feet do it as well. The pain is so awful it can make me miserable til the blood flow comes back “but wait there’s more” when the blood flow comes back it’s even more painful because it burns so awful and is just as uncomfortable as when the blood supply was shut off

  • YESSSSS!!! Repost from @agonyautie using @RepostRegramApp - In the minority they may be, but passive aggressive (and just plain aggressive) comments arrive every week in regards to my Ehlers Danlos or faking being Autistic. They’re always difficult to read in tone, I always tell myself they don’t mean to infer I’m not actually disabled, to try and consider the innocent side. It’s painful to me. Im only human and can’t help let the negative affect me. However, I am allowed to stand up and say that I do not appreciate these type of judgements being made on my health;?because I wore heels or managed to do leg physio the other week, put on make-up, stood up, walked a few steps or dressed up nice. If my disability status confuses people, how is that my problem and why is it my business to prove to complete strangers how ill I really am? When did my 15+ co-morbid health conditions become their concern? And most importantly why is it any of their business? I share a lot of my life on Agony Autie. So much. Considering Agony Autie is me, I am allowed to say “No, I don’t appreciate those words you wrote to me” That no, I did not find your joke to be funny. That no, I am really ill, that I’m sorry you don’t believe me. I get to create those boundaries by saying I’m not ok. But each time telling me you’re not as disabled as me, you’re not even disabled and you don’t need x,y,z. I’m exhausted by it. And usually let it lie. But I’m about to become an autistic disability model to finance my work at Agony Autie; if this is what I can look toward too, back-handed compliments, twisted praise with a hint of “well wish I had a disability that could do all that”, I don’t have to tolerate or accept it. I don’t have to take that, just for being in the public eye. Hope that makes sense. I promise I have a wicked sense of humour. But these comments gaslight me, trigger me & make me hide from Agony Autie instead of run towards it. #boundaries #itsoktosayNO #ehlersdanlossyndrome #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #endometriosis #raynaudssyndrome #gutproblems #ibsawareness #agonyautie #autistic #pcos #ptsd

  • Can you tell my feet are cold? They always are! This month is Dysautonomia awareness month. Dysautonomia is a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system, I specifically have Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome aka POTS. • I have been dealing with POTS for over a decade. The first time it appeared I was out to eat with my then bf and thought I was going to have a heart attack. He took me to the ER and they asked if I had anxiety. ๐Ÿคจ I didn’t go with that diagnosis... I then went to a cardiologist who said there was nothing wrong with me and sent me to a gastroenterologist because he thought I had gut issues. I was then put on a bunch of meds I never needed. At 17, navigating my health alone was no easy task. I had no clue what to do and honestly still didn’t until I met my LLMD 2 months ago. • POTS has a lot of symptoms and manifestations. Some of the symptoms can include: heat/cold intolerance, poor temp regulation, dizziness/fainting, nausea, anxiety, fast HR, high/low BP, chest pain, blurry vision, fatigue, headaches, body aches and more. Some of my manifestations include Raynaud’s Syndrome and Livedo reticularis. • Things I [usually] do to help with POTS: ginger!, no alcohol, take salt baths, clean diet, staying hydrated, not oversleeping but also taking naps, go from laying down to sitting before standing, Vit D, and staying away from stairs! Nobody without POTS will ever get my beef with stairs ๐Ÿ˜‚. • What has your experience with dysautonomia been? DM is open if you’re worried about having Dysautonomia or wondering about your Raynaud’s ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’šโค๏ธ #julialymejourney
