My normal B/P is always low, sometimes as low as 86/55 and it does rise while under an attack. I was told that was in response to the pain in the body.
My body temp is on the warm side and I cannot tolerate extreme heat, which is not great for me since I live in the Baltimore area. Though our winters are usually not too bad, this winter we've had daytime temps of 8 to 15 degrees, and though I don't love it, I can tolerate it better than too much heat.
I've had episodes of panic at various times of my life, which I definately think are linked to the hypothalmus.
As far as having a sleep disorder, I only can tell you all that I've always been a night person, and exist on very little sleep...but on the other hand, I love taking naps in the afternoon when I can. It's kinda a holdover from when my kids were little and I caught up on my sleep.
Emotionally speaking, I have been told that I'm unusually sensitive, which can be a good thing, and of course also bad, when dealing with life's stresses. Age and maturity has taught me to conceal my *overly* sensitive nature.
Peace to all
