  • Orthostatic Hypotension

    A 71-year-old man, who was diagnosed with familial amyloidosis type I, was admitted for treatment of severe orthostatic hypotension associated with recurrent syncopal attacks[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , the most common cause of syncope.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract A 60-year-old male with recurrent syncopal attacks presented with orthostatic hypotension on the head-up tilt test.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Orthostatic Syncope

    Although symptom recurrence on follow-up was lower in patients with more severe orthostatic hypotension, the clinical significance of this finding needs to be further defined[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] by dizziness (pre-syncope).[symptoma.com] Effects of orthostatic hypotension on cognition in Parkinson disease.

  • Micturition Syncope

    Syncope is usually not recurrent; however, recurrent micturition syncope has been reported with bladder neck obstruction, severe chronic orthostatic hypotension, and paroxysmal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Aetiology Micturition syncope is a neurally mediated syncope, one of a number of "situational syncopes", others including defecation syncope and cough syncope.[patient.co.uk] While the term syncope refers to a loss of consciousness in a general way, a micturition syncope (MS) is characterized by syncopes occurring while or shortly after urinating[symptoma.com]

  • Syncope

Neurology 2017, 88:17-24 Connolly S and others.[dizziness-and-balance.com] Non-pharmacological therapy is often effective in preventing vasovagal syncope.[patient.info] Symptoms generally include dizziness, blurred vision, and syncope.[icd9data.com]

  • Amyloidosis

    Orthostatic hypotension can be severe and difficult to manage. Fitted waist-high elastic stockings and midodrine are helpful.[doi.org] […] congestive heart failure, including: Shortness of breath Labored breathing during exercise Peripheral swelling ( edema caused by a buildup of fluid in the lower limbs) Fainting ( syncope[pfizer.com] Syncope or Presyncope The presence of syncope or presyncope is common in cardiac amyloidosis and results from the combination of autonomic dysfunction (which is common in[revespcardiol.org]

  • Dysautonomia

    Severe autonomic dysfunctions occur: alacrymia (loss of tear secretion), dysphagia, hypothermia, orthostatic hypotension, loss of fungiform papillas on tongue.[tankonyvtar.hu] Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) Neurocardiogenic Syncope (NCS) Vasovagal Syncope Neurally Mediated Hypotension (NMH) Post-Viral Dysautonomia Familial Dysautonomia[thezebranetwork.org] Some common symptoms of Dysautonomia include: Recurrent or near syncope (fainting), orthostatic hypotension, dizziness, lightheadedness, exercise intolerance, excessive fatigue[zebranation.org]

  • Pure Autonomic Failure

    First, patients with PAF did not have severe urinary disturbances, which would lessen the risk of recurrent urinary infections, and they also did not have life threatening[jnnp.bmj.com] We also studied 14 normal subjects, nine of whom developed acute hypotension due to vasovagal syncope.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In MSA, despite substantial orthostatic hypotension, fewer patients had syncope, visual disturbance and neck pain; the reasons for this are unclear.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Pandysautonomia

    Patient 6 had a history of recurrent ileus and severe abdominal pain.[journals.plos.org] The second section focuses on the pathophysiology and management of orthostatic hypotension, postural tachycardia, baroreflex failure; syncope, disorders of sweating, neurogenic[books.google.com] […] alternatively present in 1 patient, abdominal distention and abdominal pain were present in 2 patients. (4) Cardiovascular system manifestations included postural dizziness or syncope[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
