Ataxia- autonomic dysfunction or MCAS

Recommended Posts

Any one with Ataxia often have symptoms that could fall under MCAS, POTS, or autonomic dysfunction? 

Since returning to work I've been working hard to keep some Celiac\DH symptoms under control. I have been doing well for most part. Even stopped eating in work lunchroom to ensure I am safe from cc. I have had struggles on\off last 8 months with  neuropathy , lightheadedness, hypoglycemic like symptoms, temperature ( to be fair my body is challenged as my workplace has to do AC /HVAC worked on as when I move from one wing to another there are dramatic differences in temps. For example in one wing my co-worker wears sleeveless and the others in another wing was so cold she had her winter coat on in June. Hopefully it gets worked on. I have to move among wings so I try my best to wear layers.

I have begun to wonder if I'm struggling with other sub clinical autoimmune fall out issues since my diagnosis in 2016. 

While the My symptoms fall under those syndromes listed above I am wondering if celiac and ataxia destroys our autonomic nervous system. Or throws off the autonomic/parasympathtic system or makes us vulnerable.  Does this just take longer to heal? Or do most of you still get symptoms from time to time even if the celiac/DH is under control.

I recently switched/ begun to see a different acupuncturist with additional certification/licensing in neurological in addition to her autoimmune credentials. She is currently pursuing doctorate PhD work as well. 

Just need to know if anyone else has had this crop up. As I am trying to get this manageable as I am hired back for fall session and My husband needs/wants me to keep my job and benefits.

Thanks

I sometimes wonder if my ataxia did something that effected my body temp, I spent a few months with a constant 101-104F fever, docs found nothing wrong, or sign my body was dealing with anything. It has been tapering down to a average 99F this last week.
There was also the nerve issues a chiropractor confirmed, with damage nerves around the T7 and a few others showing below normal readings when they did this odd electrical testing for nerve functions last year.
They say spine/nerve/brain damage can take years for some to heal.......

I do normally have issues with walking, balance, dropping things, feeling hot/cold, after a exposure. It tapers off after a few weeks, the hot/cold issues lasting months.

Awol Cast Iron Stomach,

If you are having issues with keeping your hands warm especially you might have Raynauds  syndrome. RS can happen 2ndary when you have other autoimmune diseases to your original autoimmune disease. ...like Lupus or Sjorgens disease as an example.

Here is a couple good links about it .

I hope this is helpful but it is not medical advise.
