I was diagnosed with autonomic dysfunction 4 years ago.
My symptoms are numerous. Severe pins and needles in limbs especially my legs. Severe stinging just as if i had rolled through a bed of nettles. Burning sensation in legs. The top of my skull feels as if i have a circular plate inside it and the burning stinging and pain is absolutely unbearable. I have a permanent feeling of having a full face crash helmet on my head. Pressure inside my head and over my face is very severe. I can swallow food and fluid but when the food reaches the area of my breastbone it sticks there and will not go down. I have permanent pain in my upper right back which radiates across my back then round to my abdomen. Including my head the left side of my body can feel freezing cold while the right side is red hot. I have very severe hyperhidrosis, hypothermia and hyperthermia. My stomach and bowels are also affected. I cannot walk in a straight line. I have a hiatus hernia, dilated bile duct, part of my pancreas has died, also diverticular disease. Chest pain and palpitations
can be so frightening. My eyes are affected especially the right one which looks half closed compared to the left one. Medication i have been put on is gabapentin and morphine. Other medication, cymbalta which made my symptoms worse, so bad i was bedded for over a week. I thought i was going to have a heart attach. Neurologist tried me on topomax but they also made my symptoms worse. I could go on and on with other symptoms but i think i have put enough down.
IS THERE ANYONE ELSE THAT FEELS THIS WAY.
