As my quest to find an explanation for my episodes/flushes/attacks got me through a serious of test for carcinoid, and couple of other cancers it does look like the endocrinologist was right. I think it actually may be dysautonomia. Believe it or not, what ever it is, it makes me much sicker than FM and it also triggers more FM symptoms. The episodes of flushing/nausea are horrible, on top of it I am burning everywhere and i feel like I am wired/overstimulated and weak at the same time, if that makes any sense. I am wearing the event monitor and the doctor told me so far it is showing tachycardia or fast heart rate. I keep reading the National Dysautonomia Research discussion forum and I am finding descriptions of what I am going through. I know some of you here experience the same things. You should look into it. Dysautonomia seems to be very little understood and it seems there are few doctors that know it. Most people on that board speak highly of Dr Grubbs in Toledo OH. I think they travel from all over to see him. Well today I worked one hour and had to leave. I felt so sick - there was no point. I told my boss i need to take some time off. I cannot pretend like i can do this while I feel so awful. I had my appointment with the GP. She is still puzzled by this. She was hoping it would be some kind of adrenal tumor which is benign but causes symptoms like mine. Than you take it out and you are fixed. But no. I have to have yet another one of those weired things no one knows what to do about and of course it looks highly suspicious. Luckily there are some torture chamber tests like tilt table that can prove you have it. I have also asked for an SSRI. Reading about dysautonomia, it is treated with beta blockers and SSRis. No one knows why they work for this but they seem to help. I have been through this before. I was on Lexapro and the symptoms improved. I still had FM with a lot of pain, stiffness, tiredness and lack of restorative sleep. But at least these horrible scary attacks were fewer and did not seem to bother me as much. I hope I can get it back. Please pray for me.
