This diagnosis has many different variations: neurocirculatory dystonia (NDCs), somatoform autonomic dysfunction, asthenic, asthenic-neurotic or asthenic-vegetative syndrome.
What are the causes of VSD
The autonomic nervous system is responsible for those processes for which we have no influence: it is the metabolism, production of hormones, thermoregulation, cardiovascular system, digestive tract, etc. centers of the regulation of this system are the brain and spinal cord. They can respond to our emotional state.
