    Yes, every time!!! Sleeping for a few hours sometimes helps if my colon does not go into bad spasms. Taking 10 mg of Diazepam helps a lot.
    Just another tricky day. C5/6 incomplete, 43 years out.

    You'll get through.

      I do every time but it is minimal. It alerts me to the fact that I am starting to go.

            Not really... I get a little clammy sweat on my neck, but I don't count that as AD.

              Since most of us seem to have consistent symptoms every time, can you change the poll to cover the level of AD rather than frequency?

              I don't know the right categories, but something like:
              __ None
              __ Mild Sweating
              __ Headache
              __ Heavy sweating
              __ Other

                mild to moderate symptoms every time. that is profuse sweating, chills, jumping legs, pounding heart, nausea, and a few times I fainted.

                I know I need to go when I get symptoms, so in a way getting autonomic symptoms prevents surprise accidents, since they start mild and get stronger the more urgent the need for a potty.

                I should not get AD, but I do get it rather predictably, and severely depending on the cause.

                  I usually get the runny nose also and sometimes that clammy sweaty feeling along with slight dizziness. Thankfully no headaches. I have sensation when I need to go and usually try to take a suppository. Of course as with most AD once you're done going the AD disappears. At least with me it does.
