What is the Ayurvedic treatment for autonomic neuropathy ?

What is the Ayurvedic treatment for autonomic neuropathy ?

A hole in your head: Best treatment is trepanation. That's drilling a hole in your head to let out the evil humors. Ayurvedic medicine is 3000 yr old. Trepanation is even older, 10000 yr. Older is EVEN BETTER, right? Sound good? Or makes you want to run away very fast? Wake UP. "Ancient wisdom" is a myth. Ayurveda is NOT medicine. It's unscientific, unproved superstition. Be a skeptic, not a sucker. ...Read more

I was dx'd with small fiber autonomic polyneuropathy with microvascular injury syndrome on skin biopsy. What are treatments and prognosis will ivig he?

I was dx'd with small fiber autonomic polyneuropathy with microvascular injury syndrome on skin biopsy. What are treatments and prognosis will ivig he?

SOMEWHAT UNCLEAR: Not fully clear as to how a skin punch biopsy can lead to your diagnoses, as all that is usually seen is the number and density of your small fibres. Vascular problems are tough to see on the biopsy, and the fibres involve temperature and pain sensations, not autonomic functions. Would highly recommend a second opinion from a medical school specialist to clarify this. ...Read more

35 yr-old started with paresthesias 4 yrs ago, that generalized to include autonomic symptoms and gastroparesis, looking for effective treatment.....?

Neuro exam?: Interesting case, but I'd like to know about her neuro exam. By the history, her symptoms haven't progressed in a length-dependent manner (especially given the facial sensory involvement) and this points me toward a sensory neuronopathy aka sensory ganglionopathy. These patients would be expected to have proprioceptive impairment-- if she is still a dance instructor, I doubt her proprioception is impaired. If her neuro exam and nerve conduction study are truly normal, I suspect any additional testing will be normal as well. ...Read more
