Oct 4, 2013 · Autonomic Dysfunction or POTS in teens. Help! in About Kids & Teens

i have a 15 year old daughter that has had gastro issues since she was 2 weeks old (always diagnosed as the flu) and migraines since she was 4 1/2 yo. She was then diagnosed with Hoshimoto’s Thyroiditis when she was 8. She missed school last year from february 2013-may 2013. We are now on week 5 of this school year. She is so tired of being sick!!!! She has had every lab, CT, US, MRI, ect. they can think of and every time the results are “normal”….. I found a list of symptoms for autonomic dysfunction and she matches 95% of them. We live in a small town in Montana and our medical providers are very limited.
I don’t have an actual diagnosis but i feel this may be the right track. I am just lost at what to do. It breaks my heart everyday to see her sick and stuck in bed.
