Does anyone with gluten sensitivity have an autonomic diagnosis as well ? #Glutensensitivity #heatsensitivity #Seizures

When I had dealt with heat intolerance, "asthma", tired easily, had drop outs or "staring spells", "anxiety" (fast heartbeat), etc. since childhood, I thought that was "just how I am".
I think doctors most think I have a very active imagination !
Then my youngest child had same things happening starting at 3 mths old, with seizures if overheated (no fever). I did a LOT of research, kept notebooks filled with patterns (time of day, when and what was eaten, how long an incident lasted, blood sugar, blood pressure... Anything that frequently changed for us)
Gluten free diet has helped a LOT.


Heatwave = Death

I'm sitting in a three-hour lecture and the classroom is probably 80 degrees and muggy. I'm fanning myself with my notebook constantly to little avail. Heat like this makes the migraine I already had so much worse along with everything else. It makes me nauseous and lightheaded makes it feel like someone's taking a melon baller to my eyes and puts an ice pick in my forehead. Not to mention I sweat profusely no matter what I do. God I just want this class to be over. #Migraine #Dysautonomia #heatsensitivity #ChronicIllness #nausea #hypersensitive
