Introduction

The term 'dysautonomia' is not a diagnosis, but rather a reference to a group of disorders with impairment of the autonomic nervous system, the body's system that heps to regulate heart rate and blood pressure. In this section, information is provided on several specific but varying disorders that fall under the category of 'autonomic dysfunction'. While we strive to provide and ensure accuracy, there some uncertainty about autonomic disorders remains. Therefore, this information should not replace the diagnosis and counseling of a medical professional.
