The following are the results from two posts below. Differences
fromt he analyzed (in-part) data with your condition
do not in any way imply that you suffer or do not suffer
from the CH syndrome. Such determinations must be
made by a board approved physician. Additionally,
the expression of conditions surveyed among sufferers
do not explicitly mean that a person may suffer one type
of CH over another, nor that there is a norm of conditions
currently exisiting and historical, which may predispose
a person to suffer CH. CH is a complex syndrome. The
variability in this data expresses exactly that. At this point
conclusions based on the small population examined
are not, and can not should be drawn.
There are still 27% of the respondents to complete the
survey with the episodic/chronic part of the response.
Those respondents are included in the overall data.
However, they can not be included at this point in the
"CH Type" data.
Total Responders: 26
Currently Episodic: 11
Currently Chronic: 9
Unassigned Episodic/Chronic: 6
Episodic Turning Chronic (included as currently chronic above): 2
38% Have Low, or lower than normal resting Blood Pressure.
38% Have familial history of depresion/epilepsy/psychosis.
Interestingly enough, most respondents indicating
a specific response to question #2 (depression, epilepsy,
psycosis) indicate a history of depression in their family,
and a few epilepsy. No respondents noted psychosis in their
31% Have familial history of CHF.
DATA BY CH TYPE
55% Have low, or lower than normal resting Blood Pressure
45% Have familial history of depresion/epilpesy/psychosis.
55% Have familial history of CHF.
33% Have low, or lower than normal resting Blood Pressure
44% Have familial history of depresion/epilpesy/psychosis.
22% Have familial history of CHF.
These numbers, although based on a small population, need
to be compared against national and world statistics regarding
what the averages or percentages of the population suffer
from the above noted aflictions in order to have statistical
validity as aberrant condtions unique, or associated with CH.
Any suggestions or help in finding sources for such data is greatly
appreciated. May post links, or e-mail me recommendations
Serotonin is responsible for many psychological and
cardiovascular functions/autoregulation. In finding
answers to some of its associated effects, as they
relate to CH, we may find commonalities that may
aid in the standarization of diagnosis of CH, as well
as its treatment.
More results when more of the respondents post their
type of CH, and data banks are matched to our small
