Hello, i am currently having a giant panic attack and feel like i am dying. I took parasym plus for the 1st time and feel a lot of pressure in my head and it is freaking me out plz help!!February 9, 2016 at 2:42 pm #5846
i would like to add that while having hyperadgeneric pots i am also a hypochondriac and always feel like i am dying, and am also super sensitive to every feeling my body gets. Its a living nightmare 🙁February 10, 2016 at 10:23 am #5849Dr. DianaKeymaster
I’m so sorry you are suffering so much. I also had Hyperadrenergic POTS, and it was a BEAST! Although I doubt Parasym is the cause of your reaction (because it helps stimulate the relaxing parasympathic nervous system), I wonder if you may do well on N-acetyl cysteine (NAC)? Some of us have a lot of inflammation leading to oxidation and NAC (three times a day) can really help. I was on Xanax for a few years because the hyperadrenergic response was so bad with me (your doctor may want to check your catecholamines). Reducing my intracranial pressure with Diamox and starting on what is now Parasym Plus was enough for me to not need Xanax any more. I wonder if you may get some comfort (and information) from this video on Hyperadrenergic POTS?

Thanks for the fast reply yesterday was tough but im just going to assume a lot of it was anxiety. I have a terrible anxiety disorder with pots and having the two is a nightmare. I guess my next question would be what sort of test do you think i should do to figure out if its only pots or if i have other things with the pots. If i was to make a list of the worst symptoms i have without the anxiety they would be the following,
Constant nasal congestion and sinus pressure.
I do have visual snow.
Stomach seems to always be upset.
Heart seems to race every time i eat.
Constant gas issues.
Clammy skin the majority of the day.
Those would be my worst symptoms, and the reason i am asking what test i should do is because i am under my parents insurance until November “i turn 26” and we would like to do all the testing we can before that time comes. I’ve been pushing disability off for a while now keeping a positive attitude that i will get better eventually. I have also watched all your videos and you give me tons of hope that one day i will be able to live a normal life. Either way i wanted to thank you for all the research you have done for all of us and taking the time to make YouTube videos to help others and not just yourself!! Also thanks for making this website i usually never post on forums but this site felt right and i like that you take the time to answer most of our questions. Thanks for everything! 🙂
