    Iv saline increases blood volume - temporarily--so you feel better if you have OI.

    Thanks for the info. How do they figure out if you have low blood volume or OI ? Sorry I am a newbie to all this.

    A tilt table test is the "classic" method of determining autonomic dysfuction. They can test your blood volume but only a few places have the equipment so it is not done that often.

    Symptoms give a lot of information here.

    I am seeing cardio Doc tomorrow to be testing for autonomic dysfunction. Dr Rey referred me to him. He does the tilt table testing. So I will know more tomorrow.
