Today on our recurring segment Behind the Mystery: Rare and Genetic, we explore Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension (nOH).

NOH is a rare disorder defined as low blood pressure that occurs upon standing. However, the symptoms of nOH are often mistaken for something else, or are considered “just” another symptom of an underlying nervous system disorder like Parkinson’s disease. Patients should realize that these symptoms are not something they need to live with; they can be proactive and learn the underlying factors behind their symptoms.

Once they are empowered with a proper diagnosis, patients they can learn ways to cope with symptoms of nOH. Dr. Stuart Isaacson, a South Florida neurologist, explains the signs to look for and ways to manage the disease. Parkinson’s patient Keith Hall and his wife Linda, who serves as his caretaker, share their journey of living with nOH. The Halls continue to spread awareness as active advocates for both disorders.
