Welcome to "What Did The Patient Say?" with Drs. Dana and Lauren Brindisi, sisters and owners of Carolina Functional Neurology Center. Through this show, we are providing you answers to frequently asked questions and bringing you inside information from real conversations we have with patients on a daily basis. Our goal is to spread the truth on health and healing, because we believe everyone deserves to know this information.

School Counselor Awareness of Dysautonomia
Dr. Dana Brindisi had a great conversation with Dr. Rachel Vitale, who is a school counselor in Ohio.
Dr. Vitale is working to increase awareness of dysautonomia among her students and coworkers. She has dysautonomia herself and has witnessed students misdiagnosed with anxiety or stress when they actually have dysautonomia.
Dr. Brindisi and Dr. Vitale discussed what to look for when a student is experiencing symptoms that may be dysautonomia, why many students are mislabled as anxious or stressed, how to increase education and awareness of dysautonomia, and how to advocate for and support students with dysautonomia.
Thank you, Dr. Vitale, for the work you are doing!
