Autistic peeps, let's talk dysautonomia! The most common seems to be POTS, but there are roughly 15 types of dysautonomia. Personally, I think there is a ton of overlap between symptoms with autistic experiences and the more I think about it the more so many of my common complaints and behaviors are related to this. Common complaints (apart from the obvious heart rate regulation difficulties) I have that I'm wondering if you relate to: -difficulty swallowing, especially medicine or food that aren't soft are painful to swallow. -preferring soft and easy to eat foods -dry eyes and mouth when hydrated -excessive sweating even in winter -coughing in the morning and after meals from access phylum. -mild difficulty regulating body temperature -dizziness and easily car sick bonus question: do you struggle to know what dysautonomia symptoms you lack because of your low interoception?

      Hiya. I know this is old but very much relate. I have finally started talking to my Dr about the cluster of symptoms I've been experiencing for much of my life. She has suggested a few different options but as of right now its just kinda 'pain' and gastro symptoms plus general discomfort and it sucks

        @Vivelerock88 yes! I was told to drink electrolytes and get compression socks but these changes won't make my life livable...
