Autonomic neuropathy and POTS


Recommended Posts

Autonomic neuropathy can result from alcoholism, diabetes, parkinsons, multiple sclerosis, injury to the spinal cord, or spinal nerves. Please see Medline's site for info:

I was dx with it but can't find the cause. My neurologist says it could be from a virus causing damage to the nerves or no know cause. There has been alot of discussion on this topic and I think autonomic neuropathy and dysautomonia and autonomic dysfunction are all the same. I could be wrong but they all have the same symptoms and all are a dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system.

Sometimes my doctor writes A.N. or A. dysfunction on my orders.

I was dx with autonomic neuropathy because I failed the TTT, sweat test and my bp went weird when I did the blowing test.

Hope this helps but I'm confused about it also.

Autonomic Neuropathy and dysautonomia are basically the same.... Dr's use different terminology for it..... Some call is vasovagal syncope etc.....
