dysautonomia

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Last year, I was tentatively diagnosed with a type of dysautonomia.  In a nutshell, it makes simple things complicated in that the body either over or under reacts to stimuli of all types.  I'm curious as to whether this has made my reactions to tiny amounts of gluten much worse that they should be.  Anyone else supersensitive and have dysautonomia?

After reading the symptoms of dysautonomia they sound remarkably like the neurological symptoms associated with celiac disease, which, in those affected, can lead to gluten-induced ataxia, neuropathy, seizures, etc.:

Is it possible you were misdiagnosed with dysautonomia, and instead have the neurological type of celiac disease? If you had both it would certainly be very difficult for you to differentiate between gluten cross-contamination and symptoms of dysautonomia that might be caused by things other than gluten.
