Dysfunction Junction: The ANS and CFS

 
Autonomic dysfunction and CFS
 

"Autonomic nervous system (ANS) dysfunction is a common feature of CFS, and can cause symptoms in virtually every organ system. Circulatory symptoms include lightheadedness, cold hands and feet and palpitations or "anxiety." In the digestive system, autonomic dysfunction can cause nausea, cramps, constipation, diarrhea and bloating. Autonomic dysfunction can also cause abnormal breathing and urinary patterns, and problems with balance and even vision."
