Hey! Does anyone else have a hard time with their eyes? My pupils will randomly get super dilated, and I'll feel like I'm flaring even though my heart rate is normal. I read that pupil dilation goes hand in hand with autonomic dysfunction.

      Yes, I noticed this the other day during one of my symptom flare-ups. I didn’t get a chance to look if my pupils were dilated but I found myself squinting as if I couldn’t see and my eyes felt super heavy and tired.

      I don’t think my eyes dilate much but I do get flare symptoms at normal HR occasionally. I’ll be laying down and it’ll feel like my heart is about to crash and I get short of breath, my o2 usually dips but my HR is fine? If yours is similar and you find out why, shoot me a message 🥲

      Yes, my vision will randomly get blurry. I’ve also noticed that my pupils are often different sizes

      Yes I get this! Especially if I don’t take my medication. Sometimes my eyes also randomly feel like their moving back and forth really quickly.

      My pupils are usually very wide and unresponsive right before and during an episode

      Yep! Mine like to get "wiggy" and go in and out frequently and it makes it hard to focus. I also have it where they stay dilated tho. It is your sympathetic nervous system overacting (as is does with POTS)
