Patient Name: Becca
Becca talks about having Giardia as an infant, traveling with an unpredictable chronic illness, having brain surgery—twice, the wonders of high sodium diets, and her video game web series, Millennial Fair.
She lives with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Arnold Chiari Malformation, and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome.
This episode is the fourth in a series of interviews with dysautonomia patients. We are posting a new episode every day of this last week of Dysautonomia Awareness Month. Dysautonomia is a blanket term for conditions that affect the Autonomic Nervous System, which is responsible for all the stuff that's supposed to happen automatically in your body. The Dysautonomia Series features interviews with multiple POTS patients with different primary diagnoses to give a better understanding of the varied issues we each face.
