What do you do for work with dysautonomia with symptoms like nausea and vertigo? I was just diagnosed with dysautonomia and I have to normally drive 30 mins (several miles) away from home but I severely do not feel well. I almost passed out driving a few days ago and was sent to the ER in an ambulance. I’m just trying to figure out how to navigate this disorder.

      Hope you get better soon. I would suggest getting a work from home job if possible, or write a letter to HR to accommodate you and allow u to work from home when not feeling good. Dysautonomia is a disability and employers should accommodate u based on ADA, it's called Workplace Accommodations. You can also request to leave early or arrive late based on how you feel

Based on the provided context, some individuals with dysautonomia have found it helpful to carry ice packs for when they feel overheated or faint. Others have suggested lifestyle changes such as drinking a minimum of 64oz of water daily, cutting back on caffeine, eating things with salt, and finding minimal weight-bearing exercises that can increase the "tone" of the vascular system. However, these are personal experiences and may not work for everyone. It's important to consult with healthcare professionals for personalized advice.
