  • "The autonomic nervous system is responsible for regulating a multitude of organs and functions throughout the body. Some of these functions include temperature, respiration, pupil dilation and constriction, salivation and the digestive tract. A patient experiencing ANS dysregulation may experience abnormalities in the many organs and functions the ANS regulates. For example, around one third to one half of POTS patients have digestive troubles (Fischer, 2007). The problem is that blood flow is not matching the need, so blood is not going to the right part of the intestinal system when it needs to. As a result, these people have trouble with nausea. For a smaller percentage of patients, the trouble is that there is too much blood in parts of the intestines. The body is attempting to digest food when there is no food to digest. This leads to cramping and colicky-like pains (Fischer, 2007). " the above is from a POTS site http://www.dinet.org/pots_an_overview.htm i dont know if you have POTS or what, but POTS is just one kind of ANS dysfunction issue (you need to find out if POTS is your issue, it could be.. POTS people are intollerant to heat... but then anyone who dont sweat is intollerant to heat).. Whatever your issue is i suspect it is some kind of Autonomic Nervous System issue. Unfortunately this is an area where general doctors have not a clue and ive no idea what kind of specialists specialise in this kind of thing either. An ANS issue like POTS (or another ANS issue) can also affect ones body ability to sweat. http://www.dinet.org/symptoms.htm
