Vanderbilt Autonomic Dysfunction Center

Accepting My Diagnosis and Moving Forward

I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Raj at Vanderbilt when I finished school that summer and he restarted my salt and propranolol. I stuck with them for more than one pill each this time. I have seen great improvement in my symptoms since then. I have finally started to exercise. Not much by most people’s standard, but enough for me. First only a minute or two on my stationary recumbent bike, now 15 minutes at a time of jogging on the elliptical. I still have good days and bad days, but my bad days now are better than my best days were in the beginning. I can canoe with my family and go for walks in the park with my dog. And I don’t have to sit in the shower much anymore.
