    Thought this might be of interest to those who have both IBS and POTS / OI
    as part of their ME / CFS

    "The severity of AD in IBS-C subgroup was more pronounced than the IBS-D subgroup."

    Thanks, I found that quite interesting as I have extremely severe autonomic dysfunction (its causing me to end up in hospital a lot) and have had severe IBS-C too (I had my bowel prolapse due to it). So its not surprising for me to read that these things correspond

    This makes me wonder about the paradoxical responses people have to supplements many of us try out, decreases in parasympathetic vs sympathetic activity. That sounds mad and very broad brush I'm sure, but I find this interesting.
