Just wondering if others have these symptoms that match autonomic and peripheral neuropathy.
Signs and symptoms of autonomic neuropathy depend on the nerves affected. They might include:
*Dizziness and fainting when standing, caused by a sudden drop in blood pressure.
*Urinary problems, such as difficulty starting urination, incontinence, difficulty sensing a full bladder and inability to completely empty the bladder, which can lead to urinary tract infections.
*Sexual difficulties, including problems achieving or maintaining an erection (erectile dysfunction) or ejaculation problems in men. In women, problems include vaginal dryness, low libido and difficulty reaching orgasm.
*Difficulty digesting food, such as feeling full after a few bites of food, loss of appetite, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal bloating, nausea, vomiting, difficulty swallowing and heartburn, all due to changes in digestive function.
*Inability to recognize low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), because the warning signals, such as getting shaky, aren’t there.
*Sweating abnormalities, such as sweating too much or too little, which affect the ability to regulate body temperature.
*Sluggish pupil reaction, making it difficult to adjust from light to dark and seeing well when driving at night.
*Exercise intolerance, which can occur if your heart rate stays the same instead of adjusting to your activity level
*Gradual onset of numbness, prickling or tingling in your feet or hands, which can spread upward into your legs and arms
*Sharp, jabbing, throbbing or burning pain
*Extreme sensitivity to touch
*Pain during activities that shouldn’t cause pain, such as pain in your feet when putting weight on them or when they’re under a blanket
*Lack of coordination and falling
*Feeling as if you’re wearing gloves or socks when you’re not
*Paralysis if motor nerves are affected
I have quite many of these.
