Hi there 

I am a 47 year old female, for the last 7 years i have been feeling unwell, with a host of problems, chronic migraines, palpatations, tachycardia, fatigue, joint pains, posterior scleritis, I am unable to stand for any length of time as i nearly faint, the list goes on and on.  Have been to GP and lots of other specialists they dont know whats wrong, I am hypermobile and through my own research have finally found something that may fit, but I wonder if anyone knows a specialist in London?  Many thanks.

    There is the Autonomic Unit at UCLH which your GP can refer you to? The potsuk and dinet websites may be of use too as they list a number of specialists.

    Good luck with everything and I hope you get some relief soon.

    Hi Amber,

    I can personally recommend Dr Gordon Ingle at UCLH Queens Square. The Royal neurological and neuro surgery ( autonomic Unit) I live in Yorkshire and my GP referred me. It is the only autonomic unit in England and people attend from all over the country. They have helped me tremendously.
