    You didn't say where you are. You also might want to put pots specialist in the title so people know right off what you're looking for.

    I found a specialist by looking online for neurologists within travelling distance. Of these I looked for a sub-specialty in Autonomic Disorders

    I think I mentioned this in one of your other threads, but you are within reasonable driving distance to Vanderbilt which as I understand it is on the forefront of dysautonomia research.

    Sorry to hear that. I would keep trying. You may need to have a doctor send in a referral for you if you haven't already.

    You can get into Vanderbilt by 2 routes: as part of a study (no charge), or with a referral. Used to be that if you went as a private patient you couldn't choose your doc. This was a big downside for many. I don't know if this is still their policy.

    I can't remember if this was already mentioned but Stanford also has an Autonomic Disorders Clinic which I will be going to myself in about two weeks. It also requires a doctor's referral and it took me about 5-6 months to get in.
