Quick Hr/bp Question


Recommended Posts

my neuro tested my hr/bp supine and standing 2 minutes after i had walked in from the waiting room and he said it was normal. don't i have to be lying down for a bit? i have eds and ive fainted before so there's really no questioning my dysautonomia but i was just curious...

for anyone with neuropathy, i learned this..its interesting:

"In the 1930s, however, researchers realized that patients with fingertip nerve damage failed to experience the same pruney effects (1). It has since become apparent that the wrinkling of skin associated with exposure to water is due in larger part to the function of the nervous system than to osmosis (2)."

I just soaked in a scorching bath for 20 minutes and they barely wrinkled, great
