    I’m eagerly seeking anyone who underwent radiation treatments for Hodgkin’s Disease or another cancer and who now suffers any of the following:

    - lightheadedness
    - chronic fatigue syndrome
    - orthostatic intolerance
    - dysautonomia
    - neurally mediated hypotension
    - myalgic encephalomyelitis

    I went through radiation treatments for Hodgkin’s some years ago. Two years later, I started suffering bouts of severe lightheadedness and fatigue. There may be a connection. Here’s an article suggesting that radiation treatments can damage sensors involved in the regulation of blood pressure: I seek others who share my condition so that we might benefit from one another’s experience and collaborate in pursuit of effective treatment. Please post or email John at (email removed, not permitted).
