Denervation

I am still processing my recent Mayo visit.

I had much less problem with the thermoregulatory sweat test and interestingly, the test showed better sweating on my legs this time!

Does this mean my legs are not denerved? Did they improve? How can this be? Is the test a gold standard for "proving" denervation?

I still get the waves of norepinepherine, 4x higher...

So, the following question is...can you have denervaton in the legs and still have good sweating?

Tearose,

Yes , like all nerves, autonomic nerves can regenerate ... it just takes a long time .

My sweat test ,about 4 years ago. showed sweating only on my face and front of my chest ..now I notice my arms and legs sweat a little and my autonomic doc confirms that regeneration is going on !

Hope this answers your question.

Thank you, that confirms what happened to me too.

Now I am going to see if denervation and NET deficiency are related.

I'm always looking to understand more. Just when I figure something out, my body changes!!! :blink:
